The Winning Clue

by James Hay

Who killed Enid Withers? George Withers, her husband; Henry Morley, her sister's fiance; Perry Carpenter, her negro servant; the mysterious "man with a beard"? Who killed Enid Withers?

Lawrence Bristow, amateur investigator, first commissioned to solve the mystery, is later joined by Samuel Braceway, professional detective. Each has his own divergent theory as to the criminal and, while they work hand in hand, each is convinced that the other is following a losing clue. The finding of "the winning clue" leads to a denouement that is one of the most unexpected and startling in all detective fiction.

Jaded readers of mystery stories will revel in this book; clever readers who think they can "spot" the murderer will have their mettle tested in this bewilderingly ingenious novel.
