The Monday Theory by Douglas Clark
The straight-talking London newspaper columnist Rhoda Carvell and her lover are found dead in her Sussex cottage. It appears she died only hours before her uncontested application for divorce was to be heard.
The experienced mystery-solving duo, Masters and Green of Scotland Yard, face more than a few knotty problems in establishing the cause of death. Was it suicide? Quite impossible given the circumstances, but if it’s murder, the who and the how and the why remain baffling.
Masters and Green focus their efforts on how the crime was committed and come up with some very strange clues, which reveal a startlingly original murder method.
The Monday Theory is book 19 in the popular Masters and Green mystery series.
Douglas Clark was born in Lincolnshire, 1919. He wrote over 20 crime novels and under other names, including James Ditton and Peter Hosier.
