The Punt Murder
Aceituna Griffin


‘The punt had been hired for the summer. The Atkins had got one with a frame work on which a cover could be fitted in case of rain. The tarpaulin had been removed from the main part of the boat, and lay in a heap in the stern’  

Daria Lane returns to England from Italy to stay with her old school friend Merle, an heiress trapped in a loveless marriage who lives at Wissingham Abbey with her husband Leonard and his austere family. Merle is in love with the local Member of Parliament, an ambitious politician, and wishes to leave Leonard. At the local river regatta the plot takes a sombre turn. Is there, as the Chief Constable believes, a mundane explanation for the tragedy or could it possibly be more complicated? Daria is determined to establish the truth behind the events of that night, whatever the risks involved. Originally published in 1936 and set between the Wars ‘The Punt Murder’ considers timeless themes of love, loyalty, betrayal, and fear of exposure.
