by Leo Bruce
At first there seemed to be no doubt who killed Cosmo Ducrow, the recluse millionaire, with a croquet mallet, but the police are reluctant to arrest the obvious suspect. To force their hand, Sergeant Beef and his tireless chronicler, Townsend are called in to solve the crime. Then Beef's unorthodox methods almost lead to a second murder.

COLD BLOOD is a mystery of the golden age with the difference that the detective Sargent Bass is a common man who likes beer and is not at home in the manner houses. He is the one called on when Poirot and Lord Peter Wimsey are not available. Cold Blood will be liked by readers who like this period.
