Never, even in his most optimistic moments, had he visualised a scene of this nature himself in one arm-chair, a police officer in another, and between them ... a mystery. The Reverend Dodd, vicar of the quiet Cornish village of Boscawen, spends his evenings reading detective stories by the fireside but heaven forbid that the shadow of any real crime should ever fall across his seaside parish. But the vicar s peace is shattered one stormy night when Julius Tregarthan, a secretive and ill-tempered magistrate, is found at his house in Boscawen with a bullet through his head. The local police inspector is baffled by the complete absence of clues. Luckily for Inspector Bigswell, the Reverend Dodd is on hand, and ready to put his keen understanding of the criminal mind to the test.

A good first start to this author's mystery books set in England. The setting is very good, several good locals' characterization, and good clues and misdirections. Author, based on later books, likes the main detective to go for the home run as the clues build up, rather than a final round of applause so always know what he is thinking, rightly or wrongly. I liked the book well enough to read some of his later books that have been republished.
