Book Details

Title:The Sussex Downs Murder (Superintendent William Meredith #2)
Author:Elmore, Ernest  Writing under the pseudonym: Bude, John
Published:   1936
Publisher:Skeffington & Son
Tags:England, fiction, mystery
Description:A book to be enjoyed for its setting in the Sussex Downs of Southern England; where the action takes place roughly between Amberley, Steyning, Storrington, Shoreham, Angmering and Littlehampton. The description of place, vitally important to true countrymen is handled confidently and convincingly.
Not all changes with the passage of time; deliveries made from Fortnum & Mason continue into our day. The mere thought, in 2016, of light occasional road traffic is a yearningly liberating dream. Drinkers have their own tankards kept behind the bar of the local pub. A Coroner’s inquest is held in the kitchen of a farmhouse (as they often were back then); all so very, very nostalgic and very different to scene and procedure today, in 2016. The initial absence of a body, deceased, impedes but does not prevent a police investigation; the mystery merely widens and deepens when bones eventually do come to light.
