“I have an idea that a certain man is going to commit murder. He told me so—in so many words.”

If Ludovic Travers hadn’t been so sure the man was serious, he might not have gone snooping. If he hadn’t kept his eyes peeled, he might have noticed what happened to the housekeeper’s hair. It is even less likely he would have uncovered those dark deeds that took place in France, deeds that led to three violent deaths.

The Case of the Housekeeper’s Hair was originally published in 1948. This new edition features an introduction by crime fiction historian Curtis Evans.

“Christopher Bush is one of the good ones. Although he has written so many mysteries, the strange thing is that they all sound fresh, wide-eyed and dewy, as if he had written hardly any.” New York Herald Tribune

About the Author

Christopher Bush was born Charlie Christmas Bush in Norfolk in 1885. His father was a farm labourer and his mother a milliner. In the early years of his childhood he lived with his aunt and uncle in London before returning to Norfolk aged seven, later winning a scholarship to Thetford Grammar School. As an adult, Bush worked as a schoolmaster for 27 years, pausing only to fight in World War One, until retiring aged 46 in 1931 to be a full-time novelist. His first novel featuring the eccentric Ludovic Travers was published in 1926, and was followed by 62 additional Travers mysteries. These are all to be republished by Dean Street Press. Christopher Bush fought again in World War Two, and was elected a member of the prestigious Detection Club. He died in 1973.
