Bats in the Belfry : A London Mystery Paperback / softback
Part of the British Library Crime Classics series
Bruce Attleton dazzled London's literary scene with his first two novels - but his early promise did not bear fruit.
His wife Sybilla is a glittering actress, unforgiving of Bruce's failure, and the couple lead separate lives in their house at Regent's Park.
When Bruce is called away on a sudden trip to Paris, he vanishes completely - until his suitcase and passport are found in a sinister artist's studio, the Belfry, in a crumbling house in Notting Hill.
Inspector Macdonald must uncover Bruce's secrets, and find out the identity of his mysterious blackmailer.
This intricate mystery from a classic writer is set in a superbly evoked London of the 1930s.
