Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Introduced by Craig Sherborne The same week our fowls were stolen, Daphne Moran had her throat cut. Neddy Poindexter's sister, Prudence, has turned sixteen and is the prettiest girl in Klynham. Neddy can't protect her from the men in town, but can he protect her from the killer on the loose? Part boys' own adventure story, part small-town comedy and part horrifying thriller, The Scarecrow is of its own kind, an unexpected and irresistible masterpiece.


Originally published: Sydney : Angus and Robertson, 1963.

Comment by

Reminiscing 1950's small town NZ with slightly larger than life. But totally believable characters. Odd mix of comedy and very dark crimes. This however did not detract from the storyline and the book was an excellent read.
