A quiet English community is rocked to its core when a stranger comes to town and falls to his death from a gallery of the local cathedral. Was it suicide or was he pushed? Foul play is suspected, but with few clues to go on and no likely suspects, it appears that the bizarre crime may remain unsolved.
J. S. Fletcher's The Paradise Mystery is a classic British whodunit from the Golden Age of Detective Fiction. A sophisticated genre author, Fletcher never relies on a larger-than-life detective character to unravel the mystery with a flash of intuitive brilliance. He masterfully builds the mystery, peppering the plot with clues that are out there for the reader to see and to relate to. An author of over two hundred books, The Paradise Mystery is one of Fletcher's finest.
