British Library Crime Classics The Man Who Didn't Fly - Margot Bennett; Martin Edwards (Paperback) 10-07-2020 Runner-up for CWA Gold Dagger 1955.
Four men were due to fly to Dublin. When disaster struck and the plane went down over the Irish sea, only three of them were on board. With the identities of the flyers scattered to the winds, the police turn to the patchy account of the Wade family, whose memory of their past few days must hold the key to this elusive and tense mystery. Who was the man who didn't fly? And what did he have to gain? Proof in one novel that Margot Bennett's tight and suspenseful writing is long overdue rediscovery. Also includes the rare short story 'No Bath for the Browns'.
