ScarweatherBook - 2017 | First edition, first US trade paperback edition
1913. John Farringdale, with his cousin Eric Foster, visits the famous archaeologist Tolgen Reisby. At Scarweather--Reisby's lonely house on the windswept northern coast of England--Eric is quickly attracted to Reisby's much younger wife, and matters soon take a dangerous turn. Fifteen years later, the final scene of the drama is enacted. This unorthodox novel from 1934 is by a gifted crime writer who, wrote Dorothy L. Sayers, 'handles his characters like a "real" novelist and the English language like a "real" writer--merits which are still, unhappily, rarer than they should be in the ranks of the murder specialists.'
