Menace for Dr. Morelle
By Ernest Dudley
Menace for Dr. Morelle is the first full-length novel about Ernest Dudley’s famous radio detective and his inimitable assistant, Miss Frayle.
In this fast moving whodunnit the ill-assorted pair get caught up with two thoroughly unpleasant villains.
But the sinister Charles Gresham who Miss Frayle encounters in disturbing circumstances, and the extraordinarily beautiful Cleo Latimer who can turn any man’s head are not the only wicked persons who cross the doctor’s path.
There’s yet another even more dangerous criminal on the scene and it takes a masterly analytical mind such as only Dr. Morelle possesses to expose that mystery also.
Ernest Dudley ran away from home at seventeen to become an actor in a Shakespearean troop, where he would later meet his future wife on the set of Peter Pan. Dudley then turned his attention to writing, first as a journalist, then as a writer for radio, television and film, before embarking on historical and detective novel writing. He was a founding member of the Crime Writers Association, and a marathon runner well into old age.
