As If by Magic: A Jack Haldean Murder Mystery
Praise for Dolores Gordon-Smith:
"With vision and vigor, Gordon-Smith pulls off another Golden Age delight."--Richmond Times-Dispatch
"A classic postwar country-house mystery with a Christie-like denouement."--Kirkus Reviews
"Dorothy Sayers fans will be most rewarded."--Publishers Weekly
Freezing and hungry, George Lassiter breaks into a stranger's house where he witnesses a murder. But when the police find no evidence, they--and George's friend Jack Haldean--believe George was delirious. Dangerous events soon prove everyone wrong.
Dolores Gordon-Smith is the author of two previous mysteries in the Jack Haldean series. She graduated from Surrey University in 1981.
