Murder at the Arab Stud
Herbert Jenkins, London, 1951, 196 pp
Catherine St Martyn owns and runs an Arab stud with her partner, Amanda. Amanda is about to
get married to someone who can only be described as a spiv. It is obvious to all, except to
Amanda, that he is after her money. Without Amanda’s input the stud might fail, but when she
is found dead, no one is free from suspicion.
Stella Miles was a British author, active in the 1950s and a competent writer of character-
I have not as yet been able to find any biographical information on the author at all.
Finding the books: neither book is impossible to find, but they aren’t hugely common. Pricing is very variable.
