About the BookA golden age mystery, first published in 1934.
The doctors who performed the post-mortem on his body came to the opinion that his veins had been opened by jagged glass. There was little doubt that this opinion was sound.
Lance Maturin has been travelling across Europe for a few months and finds himself in an Antwerp nightclub. He is mesmerised by one of the dancers and when she passes a note to him, pleading for help, he is drawn into a web of danger and intrigue.
She asks him to protect her from the sinister De Verviac, a violent man obsessed with her. But Maturin is not the only Englishman in the area that evening - Inspector Rawlinson and Anthony Bathurst are there, trailing two missing individuals and the sinister League of Matthias. Before the evening is out, one of them will be dead - and the League of Matthias will strike again . . .
In a multi-narrated tale, we see how the two stories dovetail. Thrills and misdirection ensue, as we learn the truth about the League of Matthias.
The League of Matthias was first published in 1934. This new edition features an introduction by Steve Barge.
