Death Spins the Wheel
George Bellairs: a bank manager, a talented crime author, part time journalist and Francophile. His detective stories, written in the 1940s, 50s, 60s and 70s, combine wicked crimes and classic police procedurals, set in small British communities. Best known for his Detective Littlejohn stories, he is celebrated as one Britain’s crime classic greats. “One of the subtlest and wittiest practitioners of the simon-pure British detective story,” New York Times “Mr Bellairs always gives good value” The Sunday Times “Bellairs works in a comic tradition that extends from Ben Jonson… Each character has a particular trait exaggerated to the point of obsession or caricature.” Susan B. MacDougall
An elderly French lady arrives in the Isle of Man to try her luck in the new casino. She has a system and it pays off until she is found shot on the beach at Douglas late one night. The case of the dead roulette player has some queer ingredients and roots far afield. These include two recluses who live in the Island; an army colonel with a distinguished career and a strange English woman who during the war spent time in a German concentration camp. Superintendent Littlejohn, of Scotland Yard, peacefully erecting a conservatory for his friend the Archdeacon of Man, finds himself involved in a much more serious matter and ends by leading an international team of detectives with the shrewd help of the Archdeacon himself. Before the case is solved, many of the secrets of the dead woman’s past life come to light and a story of intrigue, treachery and disaster in the Resistance is ferreted out. This is another of Littlejohn’s cases assigned to him because of his love of France and his understanding of the people.
