ERNEST DUDLEY who is known to millions of crime fiction addicts for his weekly 'Armchair Detective' broadcasts, is also author of the famous Doctor Morelle radio series and stories. Doctor Morelle (accompanied inevitably by his assistant, Miss Frayle) has solved scores of strange mysteries and curious crimes during his bizarre and sensational career, but none more intriguing or sinister than his latest adventure. This is Ernest Dudley's first full-length mystery novel featuring the saturnine and sardonic Doctor and the timorous, fluttering Miss Frayle. As followers of this oddly-assorted couple's investigations of murder and mayhem will expect, the shocks and thrills will be adroitly mingled with plenty of comedy and amusing situations. In Menace for Doctor Morelle Ernest Dudley has written a fast-moving whodunit, rushing the reader along with chills following laughs right up to the smashing surprise climax with the identity of the murderer revealed. Fans of Ernest Dudley and his unique sleuth, Doctor Morelle (not forgetting the inimitable Miss Frayle!) will once again delight in a mystery murder, plus comedy entertainment.
"Ernest Dudley's creations appear to be doing not a little to fill the blank caused by the extinction of Conan Doyle's famous medical partners." --Western Mail
