I am astonished that I did not find this author long ago and amazed to discover her connection with Edinburgh University where her second husband was Regius Professor of Botany.
This was her third detective novel, first published in 1941.It has not dated in the way that many from this era have. The plot is credible, the characters interesting and the writing good.
Toby Dyke and his sidekick, George, are slightly mysterious "detectives" who do not appear to do much detecting, but it is George who works out the somewhat unexpected solution.
Recommended as very readable with a good puzzle and lots of misdirection.
