Price Mystery series, The Body in the Beck is an intriguing and gripping mystery tale. Praise for Joanna Cannan: ‘The plot has a subtle twist which even Mrs. Christie might envy’ – New Statesman ‘An excellent English rural tale” – Jacques Barzun & Wendell Hertig Taylor – A Catalogue of Crime Before Joanna Cannan tried her hand at detective fiction, her books dealt primarily with the aftermath of World War I and life in England during the Great Depression, although several of her novels did have elements of crime fiction in them. All show her keen interest in the social mores of the day and how people behave in difficult times. During the war, Cannan devoted her energies with great success to writing fiction for young readers.
