Mystery in the Channel by Freeman Wills Crofts

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

‘The captain of the Newhaven to Dieppe steamer spots a small pleasure yacht lying motionless in the water, and on closer inspection, sees a body lying on the deck.’

First published in 1931 I liked the classic vintage feel to this story- it is certainly of its time- but I had a job following it and still not sure how the plot panned out. Having said that I’m a sucker for anything with a local theme and ‘Newhaven to Dieppe Steamer’ was enough to make me pick it up and plod through to the end.
