After three nights of celebration in the oppressive August heat, four friends consider a very peculiar invitation.
Intrigue and restlessness triumph over exhaustion, and the group begrudgingly accepts… but upon their arrival at Mr Yeldam’s house, their host is nowhere to be seen. A man plays an odd game of solitaire, a strange woman flees out a back door, and the bizarre becomes deadly when a police constable enters, announcing Yedlham has been found stabbed to death in the other room.
Who had the motive and means to kill this reclusive man? With the prime suspect missing, the clock is ticking to solve this case before the four friends are accused of murder.
And Death Came Too is a golden age mystery from the sardonic and sly Richard Hull. Master of the inverted mystery, here he weaves a true-to-style, classic whodunnit.
And Death Came Too was first published in 1939.
