Mystery Book of the Month – November 2023

1936, London. A celebrity psychiatrist is discovered dead in his locked study. With no clues, no witnesses, and no evidence of the murder weapon, Inspector Flint, the Scotland Yard detective on the case, calls on retired stage magician turned part-time sleuth Joseph Spector. As he and the Inspector interview the colourful cast of suspects, they uncover no shortage of dark secrets … or motives for murder. An enthralling locked-room murder mystery inspired by crime fiction of the Golden Age, this is the critically acclaimed debut novel by Tom Mead.
