Summary
"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." So thinks the Reverend Dodd--vicar of the quiet Cornish village of Boscawen and a reader of detective novels--when an actual mystery unexpectedly lands on his doorstep in The Cornish Coast Murder. Julius Tregarthan, a secretive and ill-tempered magistrate, is found at his house in Boscawen, shot through the head--and the local police investigator is baffled by the complete absence of clues. Fortunately for the inspector, the Reverend Dodd is at hand, ready to put his lifetime of vicarious detecting experience to the test
