Jack on the Gallows Tree by Leo Bruce

Book Description

Within an hour or two the dead bodies of two elderly ladies are discovered in the vicinity of Buddington-on-the-Hill; both had been strangled. Each is found lying full-length, clasping in her hand the stem of Madonna lily. The work of a maniac? Two murderers working together? It's up to Carolous Deene to find out. Enough clever little twists to puzzle even the seasoned mystery reader who will recognise Leo Bruce as a master of the genre.

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.

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....
