Death of an Ancient Saxon(1969)
(Book 28 in the Doctor Harry Manson Mystery series)
A novel by Edwin Radford
Doctor Harry Manson, Scotland Yard's Forensic Scientist, was packed off by the Assistant Commissioner (Crime) to a rural country house to recover his health. When Manson opened a book in the library for the sake of a few moments' relaxed reading, it also opened his legendary suspicious mind and led him on to plot and counter-plot, forgery, blackmail - and murder.
