Theres more crime going on in Careys Circus than in the whole underworld of London. Theft- immorality- blackmail - youll find all the pretties here.Seven Bengal tigers are the star attraction of Careys Circus. Their trainer is the fearless Anton- whose work demands absolute fitness and the steadiest of nerves. When Anton is found lying dead in the tigers cage- it seems that he has lost control and been mauled by the tigers - but Detective-Inspector Minto of Scotland Yard is not convinced.Mintos investigations lead him deep into the circus world of tents and caravans- clowns and acrobats- human and animal performers. No one is above suspicion. Carey- the circus-owner with a secret to hide; Dodo- the clown whose costume is scratched as if by a claw; and Lorimer- the trapeze artist jealous of his flirtatious wife - all come under Mintos scrutiny as the mystery deepens.This amusing and light-hearted novel from the golden age of British crime writing has long been neglected- and this new edition will help to restore Melvilles reputation as an author of extremely entertaining detective fiction....
