The Longest Pleasure

By Douglas Clark

Hatred is the longest pleasure…

… and it is manifested in a particularly horrifying form when almost simultaneously in four widely separated parts of Britain there are calculated outbreaks of botulism.

In each outbreak the source is traced to an infected tin of meat, and each tin was bought in one of the super markets of the same national chain. The Home Office suppresses news of the outbreaks to prevent widespread public panic, and also calls in Chief Superintendent Masters and Chief Inspector Green of Scotland Yard, who rise magnificently to the challenge in an investigation that is technically absorbing and packed with suspense…

Douglas Clark was born in Lincolnshire, 1919. He wrote over 20 crime novels and under other names, including James Ditton and Peter Hosier.
