Sean Duffy knows there's no such thing as a perfect crime. But a torso in a suitcase is pretty close. Still, one tiny clue is all it takes, and there it is. A tattoo. So Duffy, fully fit and back at work after the severe trauma of his last case, is ready to follow the trail of blood-however faint-that always, always connects a body to its killer. A legendarily stubborn man, Duffy becomes obsessed with this mystery as a distraction from the ruins of his love life, and to push down the seed of self-doubt that he seems to have traded for his youthful arrogance. So from country lanes to city streets, Duffy works every angle. And wherever he goes, he smells a rat... 334 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram.

Fontana / Collins 246810 Great Britain 1958 Softcover Good Condition An outbreak of kleptomania at a student hostel was not normally the sort of crime that aroused Hercule Poirot's interest.

He congratulated the warden, Mrs. Hubbard, on a "unique and beautiful problem."The list made absolutely no sense at all. But, reasoned Poirot, if this was merely a petty thief at work, why was everyone at the hostel so frightened? 191 pages. Pages browned. Cover has a few creases. Quantity Available: 1.

After his adventures as an amateur sleuth, Jim Stringer is now an official railway detective, working from York Station for the mighty North Eastern Railway Company. But he's not a happy man. As the rain falls incessantly on the city's ancient, neglected streets, the local paper carries a story highly unusual by York standards: two brothers have been shot to death. Meanwhile, on the station platforms, Jim Stringer meets the Lost Luggage Porter, humblest among the employees of the North Eastern Railway company. He tells Jim a tale which leads him to the roughest part of town, a place where the police constables always walk in twos. Jim is off on the trail of pickpockets, 'station loungers' and other small fry of the York underworld. But then in a tiny, one-room pub with a badly smoking fire he enters the orbit of a dangerous, disturbed villain who is playing for much higher stakes.

Caroline Minuscule, Andrew Taylor
18 Andrew Taylor Caroline Minuscule
Penguin Books 246129 USA 1984 0140070990 / 9780140070996 Softcover Good Condition A medieval script launches a modern treasure hunt lightly dusted with black humor... William Dougal is a postgraduate student of history with expensive tastes and low moral fibre. He is the sort who is as likely to commit murders as to solve them. Thus it is that when he stumbles on the garotted corpse of his detested tutor, he doesn’t call the police. Instead, he slips away, intent on avoiding a row with his girlfriend. Naturally, his actions don’t go undetected. Enter the suave James Hanbury with the reminder that the dead man was an authority on Caroline Minuscule, a Medieval script that may convey a very modern message. Douglas is pushed into—or rather drives his Morris Mini onto—a slippery slope which leads toward a cache of diamonds—and more murders.... “In William Dougal, Andrew Taylor has created one of the most attractive amateur detectives in fiction.” —Harriet Waugh, The Spectator. And so his 1982 debut, the first of eight Dougal capers, won the John Creasey (Best First Novel) Award from the Crime Writers Association and was shortlisted for the 1983 Edgar Allan Poe Award. 234 pages.
