Framed in Guilt
Today’s Free Kindle eBook: Framed in Guilt
Behind a locked door is a grisly murder scene…
William Barridge, a meek and mild solicitor’s clerk, browbeated by his wife and pushed around by his colleagues, is found lying on the floor of his locked office with a knife in his back in the middle of a workday.
But how could a man so innocuous have had any enemies?
When Superintendent Henshaw investigates, it becomes evident that Barridge had mysterious dealings with his brother in Australia — and an association with an attractive divorcee.
But Henry Minton, Barridge’s employer — was the only person with a key to the locked office…
Part of Fearn’s highly acclaimed Locked Door series, this fast-paced thriller will keep you guessing until the last page.
Praise for John Russell Fearn
“I have yet to read a book employing the same murder method. It is unusual and imaginative ideas like this that make [Fearn’s] books worth tracking down and reading.” – Pretty Sinister
“… A pioneer of science fiction […] he was one of the Greats of the earlier ages, and his name should be there with Hugo Gernsback, John W. Campbell, Stanley G. Weinbaum, Murray Leinster, and all the others whose thoughts and works formulated today’s modern science fiction.” —John Carnell, New Worlds
John Russell Fearn was an extremely prolific and popular British writer, who began in the American pulps, then almost single-handedly drove the post-World War II boom in British publishing with a flood of science fiction, detective stories, westerns, and adventure fiction. He was so popular that one of his pseudonyms became the editor of Vargo Staten’s Science Fiction Magazine in the 1950’s. His work is noted for its vigor and wild imagination. He has always had a substantial cult following and has been popular in translation around the world. He passed away in 1960 at the age of 52.
