Mr Walker Wants to Know

By Ernest Dudley

Mr. Walker, the cheerful Cockney rag and bone man, is always bumping into other people’s troubles.

From bricklayers to doctors, journalists to shop-girls, crooks to policemen, his lovable personality has made him a well-known figure all over London.

After the murder of old Cartwright in the jeweller’s shop, Mr. Walker suddenly becomes involved in the case, helping out his good friend Detective Inspector Wedge with the missing details.

Evidence leads to the arrest of a crooked police officer, and to the escape of Cartwright’s killer.

But when another death occurs in the middle of the night – in Mr. Walker’s very own sitting room – the junkman finds his problems are only just beginning, as he himself is now a candidate for murder!

Soon the search widens all over England, with villains lurking within quiet suburban towns and the wild landscape of Dartmoor.

Will Mr. Walker and Inspector Wedge be able to solve the case before yet another victim is claimed?

Mr. Walker Wants to Know is a humorous and action-packed mystery story, with many unexpected twists and turns.

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.
