Product Description

The Cluny Problem

by A. Fielding

The DJ reads, "Just as the Villa Porte Bonheur at Cluny is recovering from a daring jewel theft, Mr. Brownlow and Sir Anthony Cross are found dead in one of its rooms. The Obvious conclusion is that their sudden deaths are the result of a duel over the former's beautiful and dangerous wife, but for good and sufficient reasons the French police have to reject this solution. A confession from Brownlow is found which seems to unravel the mystery, but Sir Anthony Cross's fiancee has a different theory. Her views are shared by the indomitable Inspector Pointer of Scotland Yard and, in the end, prove to be correct."

321 pages. 5.5" by 7.5"
