What Our Customers Say...
Publishers' Original Binding, Very Scarce, With Dustwrapper
A vanishingly scarce work, with no records of this novel being held institutionally on Jisc or WorldCat.
In the original unclipped dust wrapper.
'Death By Order' is a thrilling detective novel, written during the Golden Age of Crime Fiction.
By Wilfred Byford Jones, who also wrote under the name Quaestor. He was a journalist who contributed to Wolverhampton's 'Express & Star', becoming their Deputy Editor and News Editor. He investigated the 1944 graffiti scandal in Worcestershire, when the skeleton of an unknown woman was found, with locals graffiting 'Who put Bella down the Wych Elm?'. Jones was also a military officer, and published works on the Middle East, and the history of oil production.
