The Division Bell Mystery

by Ellen Wilkinson
£8.99   paperback  British Library Publishing (2018)

The Division Bell Mystery by Ellen Wilkinson Originally published in 1932, this is the first Crime Classic novel written by an MP. And fittingly, the crime scene is within the House of Commons itself, in which a financier has been shot dead.
 
Entreated by the financier’s daughter, a young parliamentary private secretary turns sleuth to find the identity of the murderer – the world of politics proving itself to be domain not only of lies and intrigue, but also danger. Wilkinson’s own political career positioned her perfectly for this accurate but also sharply satirical novel of double cross and rivalries within the seat of the British Government.
 
Ellen Wilkinson (1891–1947) was a Labour party politician who served as Minister of Education from July 1945 until her death. She was renowned for her spirited defiance of social norms and her impassioned speeches in the House, and was widely respected amongst MPs from each party. She published only two novels in her life; The Division Bell Mystery and Crash!
