Dead Man's Shoes by Leo Bruce

Book Description

Everyone knew there'd been a murder, everyone knew who the murderer was, and when this murdered committed suicide by jumping overboard -- or was he thrown overboard? -- from cargo boat Saragossa as she sailed to London from North Africa and Spanish ports, they thought 'Good riddance to bad rubbish', and everyone, the police included, dropped the case. Everyone, that is, except Carlous Deene

Books By Author Leo Bruce

Death with Blue Ribbon by Leo Bruce Death with Blue Ribbon, Hardback (June 1994)

Carolus Deene becomes involved in his latest adventure when a famous restaurateur is threatened by a protection racketeer and a well-known writer of cookbooks is murdered under extraordinary circumstances.

Jack on the Gallows Tree by Leo Bruce Jack on the Gallows Tree, Hardback (December 1983)

The dead bodies of two elderly ladies are discovered; both had been strangled. Each is found lying full-length, clasping in her hand the stem of a Madonna lily.

Furious Old Women by Leo Bruce Furious Old Women, Paperback (January 1983)

Mysterious doings in a churchyard. A catalogue of crime calls this probably Bruce's wittiest and best-plotted novel to date. A very ingenious idea...a fine surprise in the last moments. The humour and wit are of a high order....
