Description
Taking a two-day furlough from his wartime duty building tanks, Asey Mayo's homecoming is dampened by more than the icy mud of Cape Cod when he finds a body in the buttery, in this mystery from 1942. One fact is simple: someone has murdered Philemon Mundy with a blunt instrument. But the sudden disappearance of the corpse is only the first of many baffling developments—and there is no guarantee that the killer wouldn't strike again. The adventures of handyman-turned-sleuth Asey (formally Asa) Mayo are overflowing with the flavor of Cape Cod—hardly surprising, since Phoebe Atwood Taylor was the first member of her family who wasn't born on the Cape in 300 years, but unusual for crime fiction of the day.

"Another Asey Mayo story is always welcome with its sure-fire combination of Cape Cod atmosphere, well-knit plot, excitement and comedy."—Philadelphia Inquirer

"Taylor's droll period whodunits are a special treat, thanks to the Codfish Sherlock, Asey Mayo, a salty Cape codger who entertains summer visitors by solving picturesque crimes."—NYTimes
