Agora Books is excited to announce that A Question of Proof by Nicholas Blake out now. This marks the thirteenth book to get a brand new edition with Agora, and follows the continued adventures of the charming detective Nigel Strangeways.
None of the classical portents showed to warn him of the disastrous events soon to pile themselves upon his head.
Assistant Master, Michael Evans, is unlucky in love – he just doesn’t know it yet. Carrying on an affair with the headmaster’s wife, he finds himself rendezvousing with the beautiful Hero in the haystacks on school Sports Day.
But when a young student is found later that night, strangled in that very haystack, all evidence points to Michael. Unwilling to explain how the evidence got there, Michael calls upon his old friend (and aspiring investigator) Nigel Strangeways to help prove his innocence.
Nigel is sure he’s found the murderer, but without proof, will he be able to clear Michael’s name before it’s too late?
