About the Author:

John Bude was the pseudonym of Ernest Elmore (1901 57), who wrote thirty crime novels, all of which are now very rare. He was cofounder of the Crime Writers’ Association and worked in the theater as a producer and director.

Review:

"Originally published in 1935, Bude's murder mystery remains as intriguing today as it was upon its release almost 80 years ago. Set in the spectacular Lake District, the novel opens with the discovery of a body in a secluded garage. Inspector Meredith then begins what turns into a complicated investigation. In addition to having to find out the identity and motives of the killer, he must determine whether or not the dead man was planning on leaving the country, and if he was connected to the disreputable dealings taking place at the garage. The deeper Meredith delves into the case, the more complicated it becomes. A cast of believable, colorful characters will keep the reader engaged from start to finish." (Publishers Weekly)

“Bude’s books . . . are easy-reading period pieces that deserve to be revived.” (Literary Review)

“John Bude is a welcome addition to an exciting explosion of classic crime reprints from a variety of independent presses and the British Library seems to be leading the way in discovering forgotten writers well worth reading. You’d do well to acquaint yourself with his entertaining mysteries.” (Pretty Sinister Books)
