Unfinished Business (from The Last Confession) Up in Smoke, Morris West , single work novel extract
Mr Jelly's Business, Arthur W. Upfield , single work novel crime
The Grave-Digger of Monks Arden, Arthur Gask , single work novel detective

'Larose is puzzled by a criminal who takes death masks of recently buried celebrities, but after he has tracked down the despoiler of graves he stumbles on another mystery much greater and far more dangerous to himself. Of course, he takes the law into his own hands, and readers of Mr. Gask's earlier Larose novels know just what delightful situations arise when this master mind plays a lone hand right under the noses of the official police.'

The Night of the Storm, Arthur Gask , single work novel detective

'SELDOM has the reader been offered more suspects from which to make a selection, but three sisters are thrust forward as those most likely to have been connected with the shooting of the manager of their estate. Gask differs somewhat from the usual writer of thrillers in that the perpetrator is eventually found to be one of the chief suspects. Most others usually keep him or her pretty well concealed. Our old friend, Gilbert Larose, now married and in retirement, is called in to watch the interests of the sisters, and quickly guesses who killed the manager. However, so skilfully does he gain the reader's sympathy for the criminal that he is glad that justice, not the law, triumphs.'
