The House of Godwinsson

(1948)
(Book 25 in the Bobby Owen series)
A novel by

 
 
Bobby Owen stood for a time in silence, looking down thoughtfully at the dead man's face. A small, insignificant face, lacking even that touch of repose and dignity which death, even violent death, so often gives, and one that Bobby had never seen before. Of that at least he was sure.

Yet this same man was found dead with a detailed and accurate plan of Bobby Owen's new London flat. Why? The plot soon thickens when a man with a grievance against Bobby turns up to identify the dead man ... But Bobby will need many more beads on the thread before he understands the murderous connection to an old Army Officer, and what necessitated the death of a 'burglar'.

The House of Godwinsson was first published in 1948, the twenty-fifth of the Bobby Owen mysteries, a series eventually including thirty-five novels. This edition features a new introduction by crime fiction historian Curtis Evans.
