The disappearance of Dr. Earle brings Inspector French to the Surrey downs. Dr. Earle simply vanished one Sunday evening, without even taking his coat and outdoor shoes. Was it foul play, or was it an affair? A nurse in London, who was seen with the doctor, has also disappeared, giving rise to the affair suggestion. But then a third party disappears—making it look most definitely like murder. But without a discernible motive, French can’t make head or tail of the case.

This is a very patiently plotted case. French’s appeal lies in his meticulous following of police procedure: following up every lead, continually going back over his notes, challenging all of his assumptions. From that standpoint, it’s a bit slow and can feel a bit serious. But there are flashes of humour: for example, I laughed at the part where French hands his card to a person he’s interviewing and the person smiles and says “you want an international conference — my name is English, my colleague’s name is Welsh, too bad this fellow isn’t called Scott.”

Of the Frenches I’ve read, this one is one of the lesser books for me, just because it is a bit ploddy and doesn’t involve boats or trains or planes. But it is not entirely a “cozy” book—the murder is actually quite shocking.

This book does contain throwaway references to previous cases, so if the mere mention of a previous case constitutes a spoiler for you, then you’ll want to read this book in its proper series order. ( )

Crofts is known for solid mysteries often based on alibis involving railroads (he worked on railroads). This is not his best. It includes two alibis, one of which is clever and credible, but the other of whjich is not. it assumes that a witness who is described as intelligent and sharp-sighted, could be fooled by a very simple impersonation when the impersonator is not very like the other man, and has no known acting or makeup abilities.T here is also a third man whose car was used in the crime. When questioned about it, he displays blatant signs of guilt and it is stated that he obviously knew how the car was used, but at the end he is left untroubled and goes off to marry a wealthy widow.

Circumstantial evidence and precision timing are needed by Scotland Yard Inspector French to discover just who might be behind several disappearances. Be sure to make mental notes as key events occur to discovere why French is constantly revisiting timelines. A little slow paced and redundant, the tale is still a pleasant read from days gone by.

When a doctor and a nurse go missing, it's up to Inspector French to solve the case. It soon becomes apparent that both were likely killed, but where are the bodies? Suspicion runs to members of the doctor's household, to the doctor's partner, and to other persons connected with them. When another person goes missing, clues such as blood and dirt begin to surface. It's a complex mystery requiring the use of logic from the Golden Age of Mysteries that is certain to delight fans of the genre. An advance review copy was received from the publisher Poisoned Pen Press via NetGalley in exchange for a review. ( )

A pleasing, well explained and logical whodunnit. ( )
