Inspector Proby in Court

By John Gano

Inspector Proby’s career reaches crisis point when he has to appear in court – on a charge of murder.

Inspector Proby has pursued the suspects of a violent post office raid to the roof of the Gull building. There, Proby sees one of the robbers clinging for dear life two hundred feet above the ground. Proby reaches for the desperate man but before he can be hauled to safety, something goes terribly wrong and the suspect falls to his death.

Did Proby take the law into his own hands and act as executioner? There is a public outcry and Proby has to fight to prove his innocence. Meanwhile, he has another murder on his hands…

John Gano, a criminology expert, is known for the authenticity of his novels. He specialized in law at Cambridge and spent several years visiting people in prison, giving him first-hand knowledge of life on the “inside”. Gano is the author of the Inspector Proby mystery series and two opera mysteries, Arias of Blood and Death at the Opera, in which he combines his two favourite subjects – crimes and opera. Gano lives in Sussex.
