The Seven Lamps

By Gerald Verner

Jill Hartley has to take important papers to 18 Hayford Avenue, Berrydale – the home of her firm’s client, Professor Locksley.

But when she arrives at the neglected house, she finds the front door open, and the inside of the house, dark, damp and decaying. What’s more, huddled at the foot of the stairs lies a dead man, in a pool of blood, his head battered to a pulp…

At Berrydale Police Station, it’s up to Superintendent Budd to investigate this horrifying and mysterious case…

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.
