The Sussex Downs Murder

This is the third John Bude mystery I have read. All of them have been reprintings as part of the British Library Crime Classics series. I have to say of this entire series I really like the John Bude books more than many of the others.

In this book, we have a pair of brothers, one missing presumed murdered, a beautiful young wife and a gruesome discovery. Superintendent Meredith has his hands full as the clues point first in one direction and then the other. An interesting mystery leading to an uncommon resolution. The case is uncovered through dogged police work even down to the filling of gas tanks and driving and redriving routes to uncover what may have happened. A really enjoyable classic mystery novel that deserves more attention.
