The Inspector Henry Tibbett Mystery Series

Dead Men Don't Ski

JACKET NOTES:  “If you’re as hungry as I am for a really good whodunit. you will welcome the debut of Patricia Move." wrote Anthony Boucher in The New York Times Book Review on the publication of this first Inspector Henry Tibbett mystery more than twenty years ago. The setting is the Italian Alps, where Henry Tibbett. on vacation from Scotland Yard. and his wife. Emmy. have settled in for some skiing. But their hopes for a holiday die when Henry uncovers an international smuggling ring involving some of the hotel guests. Then, a fellow guest who is alive when the ski lift leaves the top of the mountain is found dead when the lift touches bottom.
Henry Tibbett. Chief Superintendent of Scotland Yard. has for years delighted those who love a classic British detective story. A modest, self-effacing man. Tibbett possesses an almost uncanny "nose for crime, and those who know him well realize that his gentlemanly demeanor masks a shrewd mind and a fearless spirit. When he teams up with his wife. Emmy. a cheerful but formidable woman. there isn't a criminal anywhere who can rest secure.
