THE NIGHT THEY KILLED JOSS VARRAN
On the Night that Joss Varran was expected home after a spell in Wormwood Scrubs, his body was found dead in a ditch right opposite the cottage in which he lived with his sister in the silent marshes in the north of the Isle of Man. Cheif Superintendent Littlejohn, of Scotland Yard, became involved in the case through Varran’s recent imprisonment in a London goal.
Joss Varran had been a sailor on a container ship between Ramsey and Preston and somewhere in his voyages had been caught up in events which had made him a haunted man, not so much by the police as by his parters in crime. From all appearances, he had endeavoured to shake them off by getting himself gaoled!
His complicated efforts were in vain and his murder presented a picturesque case and a strange locale in the Manx curraghs for Inspector Knell, of the Manx police, and his friends Littlejohn and the Venerable Caesar Kinrade, Archdeacon of Man.
