The Borough Treasurer
by J.S. Fletcher
Publisher: ManyBooks 1921
Number of pages: 231
This is a quite readable and well-plotted murder mystery without the customary clever detective who puts it all together. Instead the plot unrolls before the reader as it happens, but not without a few surprises and interesting twists. No false clues or coincidences mar the plot and everything is explained neatly in the end.
