A perfectly plotted crime is foiled by a runaway bank clerk as Inspector Littlejohn navigates impersonation, forgery, embezzlement… and a murder.
It was meant to be a fool-proof scheme. The victim was a recluse, cut off from the world after the death of his wife. Nobody would think it strange when they didn’t see him. Nobody would make enquiries.
Yet even the most meticulous of criminals can be caught out, especially if they don’t leave room for human error.
Littlejohn and Cromwell find themselves with more than one mystery to unravel – but will they be able to find the elusive killer?
Death in Dark Glasses was originally published in 1952.
