This trip to the French Riviera isn’t what anyone signed up for: while Littlejohn loses his vacation, another man loses his life.
When Alderman Dawson, the victim of a deathly stabbing, calls Littlejohn to his deathbed, the inspector is left with no choice but to investigate.
With twelve suspects in play and motives dating back to WWII, this might be one of his toughest cases yet.
More bodies are turning up and the French police are unwilling to investigate… could this be the case that even Littlejohn can’t solve?
Death in Room Five was first published in 1955.
