Death Makes a Prophet, Paperback Book

Description

'Small hostilities were growing; vague jealousies were gaining strength; and far off, wasn't there a nebulous hint of approaching tragedy in the air?' Welworth Garden City in the 1940s is a forward-thinking town where free spirits find a home - vegetarians, socialists, and an array of exotic religious groups.

Chief among these are the Children of Osiris, led by the eccentric High Prophet, Eustace K.

Mildmann. The cult is a seething hotbed of petty resentment, jealousy and dark secrets - which eventually lead to murder.

The stage is set for one of Inspector Meredith's most bizarre and exacting cases.

This witty crime novel by a writer on top form is a neglected classic of British crime fiction.
