Tread Softly

(1937)
(Book 20 in the Anthony Bathurst series)
A novel by

 
 
"This man Merivale admits that he killed his wife. Makes no bones about it whatever. Confesses that he strangled her. But he says that he was fast asleep at the time that he was doing it. That all he did, he did in a dream."

Chief Inspector MacMorran is up against the most extraordinary case of his career - a self-confessed killer who may well be found innocent given the circumstances. MacMorran is sure that Merivale is the murderer, but, worried about exoneration in court, he recruits investigator Anthony Bathurst to find evidence to convict.

Bathurst isn't convinced. If Merivale killed his wife deliberately, why pick such a risky story which is just as likely to convict as clear him? But if Merivale is innocent, was a third party involved? And if so - how?

Tread Softly was first published in 1937. This new edition features an introduction by Steve Barge.
