The Deaf Mute Murders

(1936)
A novel by

 
 
When the body of a murdered deaf-mute vagrant is found in a West End square, Scotland Yard have trouble finding a motive for the deed. When the body of another deaf-mute, apparently a suicide, is found in the grounds of a Hendon hotel, the police are even more baffled. Are the crimes related? And did the first murder have anything to do with a recent spate of jewel robberies in the houses near where the body was found? These are the questions that Superintendent "Paddy" Mix and Chief-Inspector Thomson set out to answer - ably assisted by Leonard Grey, a photographer who fancies himself as an amateur sleuth, and his wife Doris, a talented amateur psychologist.

First published in 1936, this is a vintage British murder mystery from the golden age of crime fiction.
