Gerry Wade had proved himself to be a champion sleeper, so the other houseguests decided to play a practical joke on him. Eight alarm clocks were set to go off, one after the other, starting at 6:30 a.m. But when morning arrived, one clock was missing and the prank then backfired, with tragic consequences.

For Jimmy Thesiger in particular, the words "Seven Dials" were to take on a new and chilling significance. . . .

Review: The Seven Dials Mystery (Superintendent Battle #2)

User Review  - Kim - Goodreads

This one surprised me. I thought it would be a Big Four-style flop, and its Tommy and Tuppence pace also made me weary. I was dreading the climax until it came, and the book actually managed to surprise me! It was actually pretty fun. The goofy masks excluded, of course. Read full review
