About this product
- DescriptionWhen the body of Rose Charteris is found at the bottom of a sand pit off Medchester Common, everyone assumed it was the result of a tragic accident, but when Chief Inspector Pointer of Scotland Yard discovers certain discrepancies, it becomes clear the death of the young woman is a case of murder. There are plenty of suspects for the chief inspector; the dead woman's jealous Italian fiance, her cousin who would gain an inheritance, even a mysterious man who spent the night in the summer house unkwn to anyone else. Yet Pointer finds himself drawn into a political intrigue that takes him to Gea and the Italian Tyrol before finally resolving the case in his chambers in New Scotland Yard. The Charteris Mystery is the second of the Chief Inspector Pointer mysteries.
- Author BiographyThe identity of the author is as much a mystery as the plots of the novels. Two dozen novels were published from 1924 to 1944 as by Archibald Fielding, A. E. Fielding, or Archibald E. Fielding, yet the only clue as to the real author is a comment by the American publishers, H.C. Kinsey Co. that A. E. Fielding was in reality a middle-aged English woman by the name of Dorothy Feilding whose peacetime address is Sheffield Terrace, Kensington, London, and who enjoys gardening. Research on the part of John Herrington has uncovered a person by that name living at 2 Sheffield Terrace from 1932-1936. She appears to have moved to Islington in 1937 after which she disappears. To complicate things, some have attributed the authorship to Lady Dorothy Mary Evelyn Moore nee Feilding (1889-1935), however, a grandson of Lady Dorothy denied any family knowledge of such authorship. The archivist at Collins, the British publisher, reports that any records of A. Fielding were presumably lost during WWII. Birthdates have been given variously as 1884, 1889, and 1900. Unless new information comes to light, it would appear that the real authorship must remain a mystery.
