"Dover One" is not only the first in the Chief Inspector Wilfred Dover series, it was Joyce Porter's first publshed book.
"Dover is Chief Inspector, moody, lazy, dyspeptic. In company with his Sergeant, a keen boy and a slick dresser, he investigates the disappearance of a sixteen-stone teenage nymphomaniac….The general tone is bawdy, , and Miss Porter shows splendid fertility in comic invention. Where did the body go? The comic-horrific ending must be the best crime fiction joke of the year."; 6¾" - 7¾" Tall
