Jack on the Gallows Tree, Tales of the PanCosmos
The dead bodies of two elderly ladies are discovered; both had been strangled. Each is found lying full-length, clasping in her hand the stem of a Madonna lily.
Leo Bruce was the pen name of Rupert Croft-Cooke, who wrote more than twenty highly-praised mysteries featuring Carlous Deene. He also wrote eight mysteries featuring Sgt. William Beef, a cockney police detective who invariably "knows who done it." Croft-Cooke died in 1980.
