The Case of the Dead Doctor

(1935)
A novel by

 
 
Old Dr. Purton has always been a mystery to the gossipers of Lower Plaine. His grandiose living arrangements at Rampole Manor hint at a hidden source of income, outside the remit of a simple country doctor. When Purton is found murdered, his head battered in, the local police, aided by Purton's solicitor Mr. Gayte, get busy. What is the significance of the pages torn from Purton's case-books? And how justified was the gossip about Purton's unexplained wealth?

Originally published in 1935, this is a vintage British murder mystery from the golden age of detection.
