The House in Charlton Crescent: An Inspector Furnival Mystery by Annie Haynes

Protruding from the dead woman's breast was the gold and jewelled dagger she had shown them half an hour before. And, looking horribly incongruous among the laces of her fichu, a deep stain was spreading.

Elderly cantankerous widow Lady Anne Daventry summons a private detective, Bruce Cardyn, to her London home. He is tasked to find out one thing: just who is trying to kill her? Any number of relations have a financial interest in her death. Then there is Lady Anne's recently dismissed private secretary, her lady's maid and the butler...

Despite Cardyn's efforts, Lady Anne is murdered and Inspector Furnival, in his second golden age mystery, is on the case, with Cardyn playing Watson. Originally published in 1926, this new edition is the first printed in over eighty years. It features an introduction by crime fiction historian Curtis Evans."Miss Haynes' new book shows all the merits of its predecessors. Careful plot, a villain concealed, natural setting, observation of character-for all these it scores points." Morning Post.
