Detective Sergeant Love would be the last to admit having an informed opinion about "valuable antiques", yet it is his critical appraisal of Lot 34 that earns him a nasty bang on the head and the lead into a genteel but chilling murder mystery.

Colin Watson was born in 1920. He worked as a journalist but was most famous for his twelve 'Flaxborough' novels, set in a small fictional town in England. Four of the 'Flaxborough' novels were adapted for television by the BBC under the series title Murder Most English and Watson's Detective Inspector Purbright remains one of the most intellectual detectives in the crime genre. Colin Watson died in 1983. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Review Text

  • By Damaskcat on April 16, 2012

    Detective Sergeant Love is browsing the lots for sale in a local auctioneer's sale rooms when he is hit on the head and knocked out. What is so special about Lot 34 that someone needed to eliminate the competition? When the lot is finally auctioned it sells for several hundred times its intrinsic worth and Inspector Purbright confiscates the miscellaneous collection of items until he can work out exactly what is going on.His attempts to find out why Lot 34 attracted so much attention lead him down some strange byways and into some local secrets which many people want to keep hidden. The investigation also attracts the attention of a Metropolitan police officer who comes to Flaxborough for few days to try and find out what has happened to one of his villains.This is a marvellously entertaining old style crime novel of small town life. If you like your crime novels without graphic violence and with a touch of humour and some memorable descriptions then give Colin Watson's Flaxborough novels a try - there are twelve of them, starting with `Coffin Scarcely Used' though they can be read in any order.
