Dr. Morelle and the Doll

A Classic Crime Novel

Ernest Dudley (Author)

In a wild, bleak corner of the Kent Coast, a derelict harbour rots beneath the tides. Here the “Doll,” a film-struck waif, and her lover, ex-movie star Tod Hafferty, play out their final, tragic, ill-fated, real-life roles. Sudden death strikes the players more than once, ultimately involving a member of the local police force. Then, as Dr. Morelle finds himself enmeshed in a network of sex and murder, Miss Frayle’s anticipated quiet weekend results in her being drawn into a climactic twist. Can Dr. Morelle find a way to unmask the real killer? Another startling entry into this long-running British classic crime series!
