E. C. R. Lorac - Fire in the Thatch
Fire in the Thatch
When a man’s body is found in the burned-out shell of a cottage, it is assumed it is that of ex-navy officer Nicholas Vaughan and that his death was due to an accident. His former CO refuses to believe the verdict and Inspector Macdonald is sent to re-examine the case. Will a careful reader find the killer and motive quite early on or will it puzzle till the end?
