IN the spring of 1946, Lady Bate came to live at the Downs, built by the eccentric Col. Anstruther many years before. War conditions made it necessary for the Colonel's daughter to take in paying guests, but only Lady Bate knew the secret of her past life and the key to her mysterious hermit-like existence. When, in due course, Lady Bate is found dead, a chance remark puts Arthur Crook on the right track, which he followsóbut at the risk of his life. In Death in the Wrong Room the talented Anthony Gilbert has written a first-rate detective story at once mystifying and well constructed. It is a story which the legion of Crime Club readers will thoroughly enjoy.
