The Architect of Murder by Rafe McGregor

Major Alec Marshall VC, newly back in London, is enlisted to make inquiries into the will of the late Cecil John Rhodes, the wealthiest man in the British Empire.  That same night one of the witnesses to the will, Eric Lowenstein, is found beaten to death in a seedy boarding house, where he was lodging under a false name.

As London prepares for King Edward VII’s coronation, Marshall discovers that Lowenstein harboured a deadly secret concerning not only the vast fortune Rhodes amassed, but the very future of the Empire.  Marshall’s investigation takes him into the dark heart of a flawed genius, and sets him on a personal journey that will change his life forever.

Edition background:

The first printing of this book sold out quickly due to what we believe was publisher Robert Hale’s custom of only ordering a small initial print run.  The crime & thriller ezine, Shots, confirms this in a footnote to an article by Rafe McGregor published 22 March 2009

As of January 2016, The Crowood Press owns Robert Hale and all its imprints.
