Death at Knytte by Jean Rowden
Nobody believes Lord Pickhurst’s new young wife is as demure and devoted as she seems, but where in the wilds of the West Country would she find a suitable paramour? Fortunately for Lady Lucille, a spate of jewel robberies gives the gossips something else to talk about. It’s not so lucky for Sergeant Beddowes, and he’s soon up to his neck in trouble; the bucolic backwater turns out to be as dangerous as his usual haunts in the stews of the London underworld. It begins with a simple case of robbery, but Beddowes finds himself drawn into the investigation of a brutal murder. If he can’t solve the riddle of how the elderly Lord Pickhurst died, an innocent man will go to the gallows, while the guilty get away scot free.
