4.0 out of 5 stars The Cornish Coast Murder, 2 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Cornish Coast Murder (British Library Crime Classics) (Kindle Edition)
If you like traditional murder mysteries then this will be a book you will enjoy. A man is shot dead in his cliff top home and the circumstances surrounding the shooting puzzle the vicar and the local doctor as well as the police. One of the prime suspects has disappeared and another is definitely lying but may not be lying about anything to do with the murder.

Amateur and professional detectives working together and some atmospheric scenery as well as interesting characters are the main ingredients for this classic crime story. It is well written with plenty of clues and red herrings to keep the reader guessing until close to the end of the book. I didn't guess the murderer and at first when the solution was revealed I felt a little bit cheated as I couldn't see where the clues were. But a few minutes thought revealed that the clues were there I had merely not given them the importance they deserved.

My advice to anyone reading this book is to keep their eyes open and their wits about them whilst reading and then you might do better than I did. It is good to see the British Museum Library releasing new editions of these classic mysteries so that modern readers can enjoy them.
