M. J. Trow: Lestrade and the Deadly Game
From the Publisher
One of Britain's leading athletes, Fitzgibbon is the first victim in a series of murders which threatens to extinguish the exhilaration of the Olympic Games in London in that glorious summer of 1908...
As the capital plays host to an army of athletes from the Empire, Europe, and the Unites States, international politics rears its ugly head: a respected German journalist is discovered with an ornate letter opener embedded in his back...
When a hurdler of the Ladies Team falls victim to her own bust-improver, dubbed "the killer corset," fingers are pointed in all directions, and not least of Lestrade's worries is that his leading lady's husband is an American detective with a short temper and the physique of a brick privy.
