MS Mill, 1945
originally published in England as Masked Murder
Talk about obscure -- while researching this author, all I could find on her is the following:
real name: Doris Marjorie Bumpus
number of books: eight, published between 1945 and 1956
One would think that a crime writer with eight novels under her belt would be more widely known, but I've scoured the internet and have come up with absolutely nothing other than what I've written here, absolutely bupkus on Bumpus. If anyone at all has any information about this author, please share -- I would love to know more. In the meantime, she wrote an okay mystery novel of the English country home murder variety, the first of her eight called Dark Prophecy that I've written about on the crime page.
