St. Martha's of Great Norne is a beautiful church (now rarely filled) in an old-fashioned town. Its conservative congregation has aged along with its vicar, who has been there a quarter of a century. Younger church-goers now tend to gravitate to the newer nonconformist churches. Great Norne, an old East Anglian port town, has itself lost population and wealth over time, much of its coastal trade taken away by the railways and much of its farm trade taken by bigger towns with better roads. It's a town where not much happens, and that's how its people like it.

Early one November morning in 1938, however, the body of Reverend Theobald Torridge, Vicar of St Martha's, is found, the skull fractured, on the steps leading down to the harbor. The local police can only assume he lost his way in the fog and fell to his death the night before. At the inquest the broken whiskey bottle found in his pocket is never even mentioned. Long-time St. Martha's parishioners, even those who found him too strict, can hardly imagine life without him.

Then, on Christmas Eve, Colonel Cherrington, churchwarden and pillar of the congregation, shoots himself in the head with his old service revolver; his son-in-law hears the shot and finds him on the floor of his study. A detective from the county police notices a couple of details that don't quite fit the scenario. Very soon Chief Inspector Myrtle and Detective-Sergeant Plett (incognito) arrive from Scotland Yard. Young County Detective Joss is glad they've come; if this is a murder, it will be his first. The Colonel's heart was broken long ago when his wife ran away with a young soldier, and more recently he has lost thousands on bad investments. Are these motives enough for suicide?

This is a very richly imagined small town mystery: we get to know people in all walks of life, from church-goers, pub denizens and other townspeople to farmers who buy and sell at the market and fishermen who work out of the harbor, including a lot more about their past than they would want us to know. People do still remember the last violent death in Great Norne; it was twenty years earlier, when a young married woman killed herself after an affair with a sailor.

The deaths do not stop, each from a different cause, apparently unrelated, each a little less like accident or suicide and a little more like murder. Is there a connecting thread? Henry Wade excelled at writing about policemen of all ranks, serving various levels of government, local, county, and national, working together, at times disagreeing, each with his own strengths and weaknesses, to solve a complex, baffling case. This one requires not only powers of perception but also the wisdom of experience and the gift of local knowledge. But will even all this be enough?

The evocative title first attracted me to this superb Golden Age mystery set in post-World War 2 England. Great Norne, the village, is atmospheric; the villagers are well-drawn, fleshed-out characters shrouded in mist, both literally and figuratively. The reader is privy to the thoughts of the police, the suspects and the potential victims. Multiple murders occur throughout the novel, each one more puzzling than the last. There are twists aplenty - I congratulated myself prematurely on solving the crimes when I was spectacularly mistaken. I will definitely be seeking out more Henry Wade novels.
NOTE: I read a used copy printed by Harper Perenniel in the 1980s and purchased from Amazon Marketplace but now I notice the used copies are very expensive so your best bet would probably be purchasing a Kindle copy.

Henry Wade, member of the famous Detective Club, belongs to the small circle of upper class British writers who invented the traditional mystery. This book written in 1947 is a typical example of this genre. Small town with its firmly defined class system, everything neat and tidy till the murder and then the paint chips of the idealistic, provincial picture. The forte of these old-fashined books is a puzzle and fairly distributed clues. The weakness are, almost always poorly sketched characters, hard to distinguish one from another.
"New Graves at Great Norne" is a delightful old mystery that I read with immense pleasure. I'll have to dig up more of this treasures from my vast collection.
