Twenty-Five Books of Christmas: Number Sixteen – Mystery in White

Mystery in White

Mystery in White – A Christmas Crime Story by J. Jefferson Farjeon
This edition published by The British Library, London, in 2014 – originally published by Wright and Brown, London, in 1937, and unavailable since, until this reprint.

Highly recommended by Herself! Let me give a general recommendation to The British Library‘s Crime Classics series, which is reprinting all sorts of long out-of-print things, and strongly advise a visit to their bookshop if you’re in London, any time of the year.
