The puzzle of the purple sickle.
The suicide of a sales clerk at the box office of a London cinema leaves another girl in fear for her life. Persuaded to seek help from Scotland Yard, Miss Darke confides in Inspector Joseph French about a gambling scam by a mysterious trio of crooks and that she believes her friend was murdered. When the girl fails to turn up the next day and the police later find her body, French's inquiries reveal that similar girls have also been murdered, all linked by their jobs and by a sinister stranger with a purple scar....
"A detective novel by Mr. Wills Crofts is always an event to those who know.... Mr. Crofts is among the few muscular writers of detective fiction. He has never let me down." (Harold Nicholson, Daily Express)

I love these Inspector French books and this one did not disappoint. A tantalising puzzle.

Excellent Inspector French book
I didn't like the story quite as much as the other Inspector French books but still an excellent performance with great characters and the usual Inspector French twists and turns.
