Fletcher, J.S.: The Safety Pin v2.0 2008-06-21

J.S. Fletcher brings us a mystery novel entitled The Safety Pin

Quote:
An elderly man called Deane is murdered in an English town. Inspector Mellapont thinks it's a simple robbery, but others disagree, and Deane's business partner, an attractive young girl named Miss Pretty, offers a reward for information. No fewer than three rogues decide to improve their own prospects by investigating — the two Hackdale brothers, John and Simmons, working independently, and the town drunk James Bartlett, who sobers up rapidly when blackmail and extortion are in prospect. Attention centers on the mayor, Mrs. Champernowne; but when thieves fall out information gets into the hands of the police and a local solicitor, Francis Shelmore, and the plot unravels rapidly.

An entertaining book, particularly in the way in which the three rogues contrive to score off each other. It looks at first as though Shelmore will be the romantic hero, but Miss Pretty turns out — probably wisely — to prefer someone with a bit more life in him. The respectable characters come out all right in the end, but not before they have parted with some of the ready cash.
