This series by Cleo Coyle has been going strong since and is still publishing highly rated books every year.

    I was just amazed at how professional and highly trained these guys were. Stuff had been piled there and secured for years for passages, but now was a heap on the cabin sole. I had a small dry bag and stuffed everything I could in there. Nevil Shute began before the war too in the Buchan vein with several thrillers. He quickly invents an account of having left a letter with his bank manager, which will be sent to Scotland Yard if he should not return safely.

Jim has great reflexes, thankfully, and said he had to hold on to the steering pedestal with all his might or he would have gone over. He finds it more understandable thanks to his experience of the railway works in Death on the Way. I could not get over all the stuff floating around inside the boat to get to the box where our passports and cash were. Aside from the dead man, there are several missing jewels and a thousand pounds in cash. Once the truth is revealed, Cheyne understands a lot about his childhood.

Palfrey are all busy in war work, but then they were into that before the war. Now they would face a formidable challenge: to ignore each other—and the unanswered questions that stood between them.

David L. Gething was murdered. I managed with some difficulty to swing out of the berth and when I put my feet on the floor I was standing in water up to my ankles. Crofts was not only a railway engineer and writer, but also an accomplished musician. Police Procedural : Crofts' works, particularly The Loss of the Jane Vosper, are sometimes considered to be prototypes of the genre.

On a dark night in the mid-Atlantic, the cargo ship Jane Vosper is rocked by explosion after explosion. In the early war years you really could escape any hint of the war in mystery fiction — if you were careful they might not even mention ration books or the draft.
