Further Information
Jean Leslie had one main series character, Professor Peter Ponsonby. Sadly this is all we really know of this author, if you have any original information then please do contact us so we can address this - many thanks

We are unsure as to chronology of the two titles published in 1948.

Jacket Blurb from The Darling Sin
"You had to check up on me, didn't you ?" Ellen said bitterly. "You had to make sure; Oh, Stephen, how little faith you have in me !" There was no answer I could make, and we drove the long road home in silence. 1 knew that I would have to find out who had killed Miss Tillie. Ellen knew it, too, and part of her was hating me and would always hate me for what I was doing to her. We were on opposite sides of a yawning chasm and there was no way 1 could reach her with reason or love.
