AWAY WENT THE LITTLE FISH

John Davies' second case (A Time To Change Mats) is not without amusement, despite a certain lunacy. As a postwar bored Captain, in a postwar weary small English town, Davies in solo sleuthing the death of a writer whose sensationalism is not confined to his books, arouses the ire of official investigation, protects the not-too-sorrowing widow, and almost outsmarts himself. Working on irreconcilable facts, he arrives at the correct solution, only to be beaten by the police. Bright writing, if slow pace, for an entertaining whodunit.
