Lord Edward Corinth & Ve, Fiction, Crime & mystery

When the Nazis seize Austria in March 1938, Verity Browne - the "New Gazette's" correspondent in Vienna - is one of the first to be deported as a well-known anti-Fascist. Before she leaves, she is able to arrange for a young Jew, Georg Dreiser, to escape to England, but where he expects to find safety, he finds danger and sudden death.

A murder mystery featuring Lord Edward Corinth and Verity Browne

When the Nazis seize Austria in March 1938, Verity Browne is one of the first to be deported from Vienna as a well-known anti-Fascist. Before she leaves, she is able to arrange for a young Jew, George Dreiser, to escape to England. But where he expects to find safety, he finds danger and sudden death instead.

Lord Edward Corinth also finds death where he least expects it: in the grounds of Lord Mountbatten's country house. There his nephew Frank stumbles on a corpse. Although the police are satisfied that the man died of natural causes, Edward's niece persuades Edward that all is not as it seems...

In this classic investigation, Verity and Edward find that death comes more often than not to the innocent, and that many lives are left to the mercy of strangers.
