Coffin, Scarcely Used
This is the first book in the Flaxborough Chronicles, often considered one of the funniest of the English detective series, and introduces Inspector Purbright who looks in varius crimes in what one inhabitant calls "A high-spirited town--like Gomorrah." This is no genteel English village and Purbright's first case involves a doctor's surgery that is being used as a brothel. First published in England in 1958 and in the U.S. in 1967.
