Below the Clock - J.V. Turner

This is still pretty fab so far. We have a death happening in plain sight - at the despatch box in the House of Commons - which makes for a brilliant setting with lots of atmosphere. We have a method that is credible but also with no possibility of being used. Or if it was used, then everyone present in the entire House is a potential suspect. 


I'm really digging this.

‘They certainly have. There is no trace of strophantin whatever on the bottle, and none in the claret. Just one other thing. I passed along to them the glass that Reardon had used in the House. That shows no trace of any poison whatever. Are we all going mad?’

(show spoiler)

‘Maybe he died through thinking evil thoughts about people.’
