Summary

The Chelsea Murders (1978) was Lionel Davidson’s seventh novel, earning him the Crime Writer’s Association Gold Dagger Award and prompting the Daily Telegraph to declare, ‘Lionel Davidson is one of the best and most versatile thriller writers we have.’

A terrifying, grotesque figure bursts into a young art student’s room. Head covered with a clown’s wig, face concealed by a smiling mask, it wears the rubber gloves of a surgeon. The girl is seized, chloroformed, suffocated and – horrifyingly – beheaded. This is only the beginning of a series of murders terrorising London’s fashionable bohemia.
