The False Inspector Dew, Paperback

The False Inspector Dew Paperback



It is 1921, and Alma Webster, a reader of romances, is passionately in love with her dentist, Walter Baranov.

There is only one foreseeable outcome: the murder of his wife.

Inspired by the real-life Dr Crippen case, they plot a way to achieve it perfectly aboard the ocean liner, Mauretania.

With a fine sense of irony, Baranov takes the identity of Inspector Dew, Crippen's nemesis.

But when a murder is reported aboard the ship and 'Inspector Dew' is invited to investigate, the complications begin. Listed in The Times' 100 Best Crime Novels of the Twentieth Century.
