Missing From Her Home

Missing From Her Home

A missing child – and she might not be the last victim…
Classic crime from one of the greats of the Detection Club


Angela Toni, only nine years old, has been missing for several days, and it is Wilfrid Hersey’s son Ben who is under suspicion. Hersey meets Detective Arthur Crook, whose blood boils at thought of a child killer.

But as Crook digs deeper he discovers that the night Angela disappeared was also the night an unidentified man was found in Hangman’s Alley, a shortcut the child would have taken on her way home. And another murder will take place before Crook finally uncovers the truth.
