Another classic book of murder mystery and mayhem skillfully written with an in depth journey to find out who really did the evil deed and why. „The Shrieking Pit” is one of Arthur Rees’s earlier works. American private detective Grant Colwyn is on a leisurely holiday in a fashionable seaside hotel in Norfolk when one morning during breakfast the strange behavior of one of the other guests catches his attention. The young man later leaves the hotel without paying his bill, and turns up in a nearby hamlet in the Norfolk marshes where he takes lodgings at the village inn. The next day, another guest at the inn is found dead, and the young man is missing. Can Colwyn sort out the mystery and prove the young man’s innocence one way or the other?
