Murder Most Foul No. 65
Most crime enthusiasts enjoy a good mystery and this quarter we’ve got two of them in this action-packed issue to get you thinking. Starting on page 6 is a home-grown double-murder mystery involving a cattle-dealer and his “housekeeper” who were found dead in the garden of their cottage at Skinner’s Bottom, near Redruth, Cornwall. Robbery was suggested as one motive, a deadly fight another. To add to the confusion, the local police reached one conclusion, Scotland Yard another.
Mystery Of The 13 Marks is another murder by a person or persons unknown. Who was the killer of Norman Bechtel? Why were there 13 holes punctured in the flesh around his heart? And what sinister forces brought sudden and violent death to four members of his family?
With mysteries there are more questions than answers, so let us know what you think of these two cases.
