Bump in the Night
Bump in the Night by Colin Watson (Mystery/Suspense)
Someone is setting off explosions in the town of Chalmesbury and it's only an annoyance at first, but then someone is killed. Chief Inspector Larch is mystified at first and then reaches an easy but erroneous conclusion after the death. Inspector Purbright is called in as an adviser from headquarters and the real investigation begins. A follow-up to Watson's book COFFIN, SCARCELY USED, this book has many sprinkles of typically wry British humor, but the ending is a little sad. -- Added by ERobinson on 02/19/2017
