Rayner-Slade Amalgamation

Book cover
By: (1863-1935)

Marshall Allerdyke is driving through the night from London to Hull in response to an urgent telegram from his cousin. As he nears Hull, a beautiful woman stops his car to ask for directions to Scotland. Odd time to be traveling so far and in such a hurry, but Allerdyke's mind is elsewhere. When he finally arrives in Hull, he finds his cousin dead in his hotel room and a valuable consignment of jewels missing. Allerdyke's only clue rests with that woman hurrying off to Scotland.

another good story by Fletcher, with all the twists and turns at which he's so good. MaryAnne (sp?) is a very, very delightful reader.
