Bestseller Kindle The 12:30 from Croydon I have not read any of Freeman Wills Crofts works before, although I am a devotee of the "Golden Age" detectives. What a pleasure!In The 12.30 from Croydon (which incidentally is a flight, not a train), the author takes a totally different slant on both the crime and investigation.We begin with a body. Andrew Crowther, a wealthy retired manufacturer, is found dead in his seat on the 12.30 flight from Croydon to Paris. Rather less orthodox is the ensuing flashback in which we live with the killer at every stage, from the first thoughts of murder to the strains and stresses of living with its execution. Seen from the criminal's perspective, a mild-mannered Inspector by the name of French is simply another character who needs to be dealt with. This is an unconventional yet gripping story of intrigue, betrayal, obsession, justification and self-delusion. And will the killer get away with it?The chapter headings are delightful - 'Charles Suffers a Setback', the writing is compelling and the characters oh so very human! The final few chapters are devoted to the events from the detective's viewpoint.All together, very different but it works superbly!Thank you to Poison Pen Press via NetGalley for a digital ARC of the 12.30 from Croydon for review. All opinions expressed in this review are entirely my own.
