Its favourite afternoon pastime was murder, and its favourite evening occupation was the same, only a trifle more so.

Anthony Bathurst reaches Swallowcliffe Hall, summoned by Constance Whittaker, to protect her husband, Major Whittaker, from an unnamed threat. Bathurst enlists his friend Peter Daventry, a crack shot and good in a fight.

One of the household suddenly drops dead, despite no one being anywhere near him. When poison is revealed to be the method of execution, Bathurst finds himself asking how someone can poison from a distance, or whether there is quite another solution to this fiendish mystery . . .

Invisible Death was originally published in 1929. This new edition includes an introduction by crime fiction historian Steve Barge.

Brian Flynn was born in 1885 in Leyton, Essex. He won a scholarship to the City Of London School, and from there went into the civil service. In World War I he served as Special Constable on the Home Front, also teaching "Accountancy, Languages, Maths and Elocution to men, women, boys and girls" in the evenings, and acting in his spare time.
It was a seaside family holiday that inspired Brian Flynn to turn his hand to writing in the mid-twenties. Finding most mystery novels of the time "mediocre in the extreme", he decided to compose his own. Edith, the author's wife, encouraged its completion, and after a protracted period finding a publisher, it was eventually released in 1927 by John Hamilton in the UK and Macrae Smith in the U.S. as The Billiard-Room Mystery.
The author died in 1958. In all, he wrote and published 54 mysteries, the vast majority featuring the super-sleuth Anthony Bathurst.
