Death Makes a Prophet

£8.99

From the author of The Cheltenham Square Murder and Death on the Riviera.

Welworth Garden City in the 1940s is a forward-thinking town where free spirits find a home – vegetarians, socialists, and an array of exotic religious groups.

Product details

Chief among these are the Children of Osiris, led by the eccentric High Prophet, Eustace K. Mildmann. The cult is a seething hotbed of petty resentment, jealousy and dark secrets – which eventually lead to murder. The stage is set for one of Inspector Meredith’s most bizarre and exacting cases. This witty crime novel by a writer on top form is a neglected classic of British crime fiction.

John Bude was the pseudonym of Ernest Elmore (1901–1957), an author of the golden age of crime fiction. Elmore was a co-founder of the Crime Writers’ Association, and worked in the theatre as a producer and director. Other John Bude crime titles available as British Library Crime Classics include The Cheltenham Square Murder and Death on the Riviera.
