Tom Brown's Body Paperback
Rediscover Gladys Mitchell - one of the 'Big Three' female crime fiction writers alongside Agatha Christie and Dorothy L.
Sayers. The matchless detective and psychoanalyst Mrs Bradley is visiting the picturesque village of Spey in search of a local witch when Gerald Conway, a junior master at Spey College, is found murdered.
Despised by both pupils and peers, there is no shortage of suspects but can the redoubtable Mrs Bradley use tact, wit and just a touch of black magic to make the boys and their masters divulge the truth?
Opinionated, unconventional, unafraid...If you like Poirot and Miss Marple, you'll love Mrs Bradley.

Review by jon1lambert
This was first published in 1949 and is bizarre. It is a crime story set in a public school; it is therefore full of public school jargon and silly things about Houses and Housemasters. Who killed Conway? I'll tell you - it was Mr Pearson. All the stuff about witchcraft is padding.
