Death of a Busybody

George Bellairs / Ric Jerrom
Miss Tither the village busybody is not the best-loved resident of Hilary Magna. She has made many enemies: bombarding the villagers with religious tracts berating drunkards and informing the spouses of cheating partners. Her murder however is still a huge shock to the Reverend Ethelred Claplady and his parish. Inspector Littlejohn's understanding of country ways makes him Scotland Yard's first choice for the job. A second death does little to settle the collective nerves of the village and as events escalate a strange tale of hidden identities repressed resentment religious fervour and financial scams is uncovered. Life in the picturesque village of Hilary Magna proves to be far from idyllic. George Bellairs was the pseudonym of Harold Blundell (1902-1985) a prominent banker and philanthropist from Manchester who became the author of a popular series of detective stories featuring Thomas Littlejohn published over nearly 40 years.
