Trade paperback. A retired judge is found shot in his private garden, and beside him is found the body of an ex-convict whom he had sent to jail—it looks like a pretty clear case of murder and suicide—motive: revenge. Sir Arthur Sinclair, our old favorite of Scotland Yard, soon discovers that the death of Sir Ernest Ferber is not nearly as simple as it looked. The clues are unusually baffling—the threads of the great knot strangely twisted and sinister. The setting of the story is Baddington Court, an ancient manor deep in the English country—a richly traditional estate which has at its very core the Secret Garden in which the bodies were found. (The Ramble House edition of ‘The Baddington Horror’ features a mapback showing the murder scene.) This reprint is part of the Ramble House mission to bring Walter S. Masterman’s distinctive novels back into print.
