The Lady of Doom

By Gerald Verner

Whispers have reached Scotland Yard of an elusive figure that has appeared on the dark horizon of crime and is making its influence felt. 

Then the first threatening letter comes, demanding a huge payment, or death for its recipient. The victim goes to the police for protection – only to be promptly murdered. The same graft has been worked by gangsters in Chicago – and now it seems they have arrived in London. As Scotland Yard strives to find the criminal mastermind responsible, so too does a mysterious woman… the Lady of Doom!

The third in the Trevor Lowe series, The Lady of Doom is a captivating whodunit with thrills round every corner!

Gerald Verner (1897-1980) was the pseudonym of British writer John Robert Stuart Pringle. Born in London, Verner wrote more than 120 novels that have been translated in over 35 languages, and many of his books have been adapted into films, radio serials and stage plays. Verner also wrote forty-four Sexton Blake tales.
