Gladys Mitchell Bibliography    

MRS. BRADLEY, indefatigable as ever in the pursuit of her somewhat eccentric interests, had been searching for a book on witchcraft written by an ancestress. She traced it to a village not far from Spey School; and there the story might have ended, had not two boys, who had broken out of the school at night, heard one of the masters talk of murder. Shortly after a junior master was killed: he was drowned and his body placed just within the school gates: and, naturally, Mrs. Bradley's plans were abruptly changed. 'Mrs. Bradley is easily the best woman detective in fiction,' wrote the News Chronicle reviewer, and in Tom Brown's Body she is at her brilliant and malicious best.
