British Library Crime Classics
Published by British Library Publishing
This stunning set of six best-selling British Library Crime Classics have been printed in hardback exclusively for Folio and are only available to buy here.
Selected by Folio, this set of six novels spans all genres from the Golden Age of British crime writing. Set in London and edited by Martin Edwards, Capital Crimes is a series of devious capers around the city that will appeal to fans of gritty, urban crime drama. Travelling across the country, The Cornish Coast Murder is a classic mystery novel from the pen of John Bude that takes place in a sleepy fishing village on Cornwall’s Atlantic coast.
The set also includes two page-turning country-house mysteries: The Santa Klaus Murder by Mavis Doriel Hay sees the entire Melbury family come under suspicion when the patriarch is murdered; while J. Jefferson Farjeon’s Thirteen Guests is set against the backdrop of a hunting party. Freeman Wills Crofts employs the sleuthing skills of Inspector French in his investigation of the disappearance of Dr Earle, and finally, we travel to the Scottish Highlands for Anthony Wynne’s classic locked-room mystery – a fast-paced novel with clever hooks and twists.
