The Chelsea Murders


Author: Lionel Davidson
Winner of the Crime Writer's Association Gold Dagger Award 'Lionel Davidson is one of the best and most versatile thriller writers we have.' Daily Telegraph A terrifying and grotesque figure bursts into a young art student's room. Head covered with a clown's wig, face concealed by a smiling mask, it wears the rubber gloves of a surgeon. Seizing the girl, she is chloroformed, suffocated and - horrifyingly - beheaded. It's only the beginning of a series of murders terrorising London's fashionable bohemia. The police target three avant-garde filmmakers. One of them is mocking the other two - and openly taunting the police as well. Their film itself shows clues. Indeed the murderer even shows himself - in a mask. But which of them is behind it? That's the problem. Fast paced, terrifying and gripping, this is a page-turning thriller from a master of the genre.
