About This Book
"Did you hear, during these last few days, any mention from your brother of an animal?"
Amazingly, she nodded! "Yes... I heard him refer once-to a spiked lion."
John Pender Blundell, a codebreaker in the Great War, is found dead in Bushey Park. He met his end, despite the savaged appearance of his body, from cyanide poisoning.
Another similar death is soon discovered, and then yet another. With no apparent connection, Bathurst finds himself faced with a serious puzzle. How do the events link to the recently returned-from-apparent-death heir to the title of Lord Trensham? And what exactly is the spiked lion?
The Spiked Lion was first published in 1933. This new edition features an introduction by Steve Barge.
"Bathurst's solution, a characteristic shared with the other excellent Flynn novels, is construed with unerring logic and its every step accompanied by an unfailing interest." New York Times
