Right at the bottom of the column, it was. Something for which she had not dared to hope. Not in remote, prosperous, hard-headed Flaxborough. A matrimonial bureau. Two women have disappeared in the small market town of Flaxborough. They are about the same age, both quite shy and both unmarried. As Inspector Purbright discovers the only connection between them appears to be the Handclasp House Marriage Bureau, but what begins as a seemingly straightforward missing persons case soon spirals out of control as Purbright encounters deceit, blackmail and murder. "Lonelyheart 4122" is the fourth in Colin Watson's "Flaxborough" series and was first published in 1967. 'Flaxborough, that olde-worlde town with Dada trimmings' - "Sunday Times". 'Watson's "Flaxborough" begins to take on the solidity of Bennett's Five Towns, with murder, murky past and much acidic comment added' - H.R.F. Keating.
Colin Watson was born in 1920. He worked as a journalist but was most famous for his twelve 'Flaxborough' novels, set in a small fictional town in England. Four of the 'Flaxborough' novels were adapted for television by the BBC under the series title Murder Most English and Watson's Detective Inspector Purbright remains one of the most intellectual detectives in the crime genre. Colin Watson died in 1983.
