Dead Lion (Mandrake Mysteries Book 2

By John Bonett, Emery Bonett

Cyprian Druse is a literary lion, but he is not a good man.

As a critic he is grudgingly respected, but as an individual – given to cruelty and manipulation – he is loathed. So, nobody is very upset when he is found dead. The police say it was an accident.

But not everyone agrees with the police. Simon Crane, Druse’s nephew, suspects murder. Druse’s vituperative pen had destroyed many reputations and several women fell victim to his egocentric ruthlessness. The literary lion was in truth a viper and Crane sets out to discover – with the help of fellow sleuth Professor Mandrake – the real story behind Druse’s demise.

First published in 1949, Dead Lion is a must-read for fans of crime fiction from the genre’s golden age.
