Autorentext

Christopher Bush was born Charlie Christmas Bush in Norfolk in 1885. His father was a farm labourer and his mother a milliner. In the early years of his childhood he lived with his aunt and uncle in London before returning to Norfolk aged seven, later winning a scholarship to Thetford Grammar School.
As an adult, Bush worked as a schoolmaster for 27 years, pausing only to fight in World War One, until retiring aged 46 in 1931 to be a full-time novelist. His first novel featuring the eccentric Ludovic Travers was published in 1926, and was followed by 62 additional Travers mysteries. These are all to be republished by Dean Street Press.
Christopher Bush fought again in World War Two, and was elected a member of the prestigious Detection Club. He died in 1973.



Klappentext

'I judge him to have been dead just about twenty-four hours. Suicide, almost certainly.'
Ludovic Travers polished his eyeglasses. Inspector Wharton grunted-sure signs of impending mystery. And they were right.
The car took the wrong turning and landed them in double murder dressed as suicide. In one room, made up for her principal success, Mary Tudor, was Mary Legreye-poisoned on her throne. In the next, the handyman-dead on the floor. Nothing initially justifies arrest-but Travers pursues his hunch, breaks a cast-iron alibi, and justifies, as never before, his reputation for unerring intuition.
The Case of the Tudor Queen was originally published in 1938. This new edition features an introduction by crime fiction historian Curtis Evans.
"The visionary Travers seems to be crooning to himself with considerable justice: 'We are the alibi breakers; we are the dreamers of dreams.'"--Observer
