A Crampton of the Chronicle mystery

Comic postcard artist Archie Flowerdew is sentenced to hang…and it's no laughing matter.


Condemned man Archie Flowerdew is to hang for the murder of rival artist Percy Despart. Convinced of his innocence, Archie's niece, Tammy, persuades Evening Chronicle reporter Colin Crampton to take up the case, but the more Colin investigates, the more it looks like Archie is guilty. But as Colin continues to probe he realises that he is putting his job, and his life, in peril...

Join Colin in this Swinging Sixties fun adventure, where the thrills and the laughs continue right to the last page.

The third book in the popular Crampton of the Chronicle mystery series.


I really do enjoy most of Peter Bartram books, especially these investigative journalist stories - they remind me so much of the era of pulp fiction. The characters are just so great, and the stories really have you at the edge of your seat following the twists and turns of the mystery. Love Tammy and her colloquialism, and as for Henrietta and the Clipping Cousins, they just make me laugh. ~ Leyla Johnson, NetGalley

Praise for previous volume in the series, Stop Press Murder: An intellectual whodunit, featuring well thought out characters with wit and panache to equal Agatha Christie. I highly recommend this book as it has made me laugh and puzzle over the end result. It has more plot twists than DNA but keeps the reader gripped at every turn. I can't say anything more than read it, read it, read it! ~ Vicky Cassidy
