About This Book
"As long as there is no more stupid talk of murder, or threats of any kind, you will find me ready and willing to be reasonable."
David Somerset, an industrial chemist, meets a mysterious syndicate in a Gloucestershire village. What exactly does David Somerset have to sell?
Somerset fails to return to London and his son Geoffrey disappears on the same day. The pair of them are soon found dead. With a killer's sights now set on the other son, Gerald, it falls to Anthony Bathurst to track down the mysterious syndicate and unmask a cunning murderer. But he's a little distracted by a femme fatale...
Inspector MacMorran is aware of this, and takes some pleasure when Bathurst is briefly baffled-and in love. Along the way there are chills, red herrings, highly original twists, and an amazing revelation at the end.
Fear and Trembling was first published in 1936. This new edition features an introduction by Steve Barge.
