"This book is dedicated to the Importunate Schoolmaster, who on the plea that other educational institutions besides the public schools could do with a few murders, bludgeoned me into writing it"
BUSH, Christopher The Case of the Dead Shepherd London, Howard Baker, 1970.
8vo. Original red cloth with illustrated dust wrapper depicting a classroom murder scene, top edge coloured red; pp.319; jacket a little rubbed with light toning to spine, a very good copy with the signature of Christopher Bush to the title page.
A classic detective novel from prolific writer Christopher Bush, signed by the author. This edition was published by Howard Baker some 40 years after the original, due to the series being long out of print, including a new dust wrapper. The Case of the Dead Shepherd stalks the unquiet halls of a County School with a delightful murder spree.
