Publisher's Weekly Review

The fifth book in Crippen & Landru's Lost Classics series, Christianna Brand's The Spotted Cat and Other Mysteries from Inspector Cockrill's Casebook, edited by Tony Medawar, gathers all nine previously published short stories to feature the wizened, birdlike Kent police inspector, plus one tale and a three-act play heretofore unpublished. In his scholarly introduction, Medawar makes a cogent case for why Brand, the pseudonym of Mary Christianna Milne Lewis (1907-1988), is long overdue for revival. (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
