lf strangled witness

A few hours before Senator Greer intended to renounce his support of public utilities, he was found murdered in his study. Washington police knew he lived in a maze of political intrigue, surrounded by enemies. They knew, too, about lovely Lynn Ash, secret lobbyist for the utility interests, who had been closely associated with Greer. But when they went to question her, they found she had been strangled to death in her car. The case was a stalemate until Colonel Primrose, sentimental gentleman sleuth, smoked out the killer in this breathless mystery novel of the nation’s cosmopolitan capital.

I just love going back in time, and reading the classic vintage “Golden Age” mysteries from the early, to middle part of the 20th century.

The Strangled Witness is the first of the Colonel John Primrose mysteries, and is full of atmosphere and electric charge from the era.

I enjoyed this first outing of Colonel Primrose and the solid Sergeant Buck, and look forward to reading and reviewing  more of their adventures…where you will be introduced to the lovely Grace Latham.

Sadly these classics are hard to find.  Thankfully I have managed to collect the majority of the Leslie Ford books, including all the Colonel John Primrose and Grace Latham mysteries, over the last 40 years.

    1. I have been collecting Leslie Ford books for the last 40 years. I know I have all the Grace Latham and Col. Primrose books. I have read a few of them in the past, but I am going back and rereading and reviewing them all, bit by bit. 🙂
