Well, it's been a while since you've dug up someone I've never heard of! I like these retro traditional mysteries. Always surprising to find one published in the 1960s when writers were eschewing the puzzle elements in mystery fiction. Sometimes these later writers surpass the Golden Age writers. I'll keep my eye out for this book.

Her books are very hard to find, John, you can check your local public library, which is where I find many of these. This is one of the Black Dagger crime reissues, so it might be easier to pin down.

I met Isobel at a CWA conference in the early 90s. She was a very pleasant person, though if I've ever read her books, I can't call any to mind right now. The story of her last days is extremely sad and poignant.

I agree, Martin. I can't wait for the cure to Alzheimer's and other forms of dementia. The sooner, the better. I keep hearing of alleged breakthroughs in laboratory animals, but so far, no human cures.
