Parlour Game - Helen Shepherd Mysteries #11
Publisher: Pegasus Pulp Publishing
When Edgar Asheford-Browne is found dead in his palatial home, with a hole in his head and a bloody fire poker next to his body, the cause of death seems obvious. Edgar Asheford-Browne was beaten to death. But as Detective Inspector Helen Shepherd and her team begin to unravel the case, it suddenly seems much less clear. For Helen has to deal not only with contradictory evidence, but also with an entire library full of suspects who are all accusing each other. This is a mystery novelette of 10800 words or approximately 38 print pages in the Helen Shepherd Mysteries series, but may be read as a standalone.
