The Woman in Red : classic crime fiction by Lucy Malleson, writing as Anthony Gilbert Paperback / softback

Part of the Mr Crook Murder Mystery series

Paperback / softback


They took her identity - they wanted her life - but they couldn't take her spirit.

Classic crime from one of the greats of the Detection ClubWhen Julia Ross, a jobless and penniless young woman, is sent to meet a prospective employer, she is oblivious to the trap that awaits her.

As she rings the bell to 30 Henriques Square, the door opens on a London household ruled by a woman dressed in red with murderous intentions. For Julia is exactly what she needs - someone with no family, no connections, who will not be missed... Two days later, Julia awakes in a different house in different clothes and with a new identity. And no one will believe anything she says. But the woman in red hadn't reckoned on a secret admirer even Julia didn't know she had - and the indefatigable sleuth Arthur Crook.
