M. J. Trow: Lestrade and the Mirror of Murder

Lestrade and the Mirror of Murder From the Publisher
Here it is, a case to challenge Supertintendent Sholto Lestrade of Scotland Yard. The madness begins when Captain Orange, late of the merchant service, and his three nieces are killed in a carriage accident. The only clues? A tall man seen near the Captain's house shortly before the carriage left, and a broken mirror found in the Captain's breast pocket.

Next, Janet Calthrop of King's College, London, tumbles to her death as she makes her way to her lover's bedroom, the victim of a tripwire across the stairs. The clue? A broken mirror found in said lover's boudoir.

So it is little surprise that, when the dead body of Juan Thomas de Jesus-Lopez is discovered in a ruined lighthouse, the only clue is a broken mirror.

As the murders pile up, so do the mirrors...and the suspects.

"Mirror, mirror, on the wall," muses Superintendent Lestrade, "who's the guiltiest of them all?"

He is to find out.
