SNOW, C.P. (Charles Percy Snow, 1st Baron), 1905-1980 : DEATH UNDER SAIL.
London : William Heinemann, (1932). First edition. His first novel – a murder mystery set on the Norfolk Broads. “Dr. Snow is better known for his research work among the elusive vitamins; in fact, this is his first thriller, and the outcome of a brief holiday on the Broads after a particularly arduous spell of work. Although there is nothing laboured or academic about the yarn, he has obviously brought his scientific spirit to bear upon it, for the plot is as watertight as a good yacht should be. As might be expected, however, some of the characters are doctors and these are portrayed particularly well. Amateur yachtsmen who wish to dispose of an unwelcome skipper, and connoisseurs of detective fiction will find this tale much to their liking” (Sheffield Daily Telegraph, 14th July 1932).
