Synopsis
WHEN your wife leaves you for another man and, not long after after divorce and remarriage, dies from a fall in her bath, you might be inclined to shrug your shoulders and add a sad philosophical "Well, that's that!" But Colonel Barne of the War Office felt rather differently; several doubts assailed him regarding the all too apparent accident. Why, for instance, had Brenda securely bolted the bathroom door on the fatal night when Barne knew only too well of her lifelong habit of leaving it unfastened? This and other doubts nagged at Colonel Barne and would not allow him to rest; his investigations took him to Somerset, to Lincoln, and as far as Rome before his inexpert, but effective, probing of problem was rewarded. In Death by Marriage, E. G. Cousins diverges somewhat from the beaten track of crime fiction; his story is not so much a whodunit—that is clear from the beginning—but a "how-did-he-do-it". The story is none the less exciting for that.
