Bouquet Garni by Douglas Clark
Death strikes again and again… and again.
Three girls die of poison in different parts of the same town on the same day. There must be a connection between these deaths, some relating factor, the police argue, but what can it be? The post mortems take a long time. Were the deaths murder or accidental food poisoning?
The local police call in the Scotland Yard team, Masters and Green, and when poison is identified the trail leads back to a nurseryman who was recently targeted by vandals.
Bouquet Garni sees Masters and Green use their medical expertise to solve a crime of an altogether more horticultural nature.
Douglas Clark was born in Lincolnshire, 1919. He wrote over 20 crime novels and under other names, including James Ditton and Peter Hosier.
