GREEN FOR DANGER

Green for Danger is a popular 1944 detective novel by Christianna Brand, praised for its clever plot, interesting characters, and wartime hospital setting. It was made into a1946 film which is regarded by film historians as one of the greatest screen adaptations of a Golden Age mystery novel.

.A murder takes place in a rural British hospital. Inspector Cockrill is tasked to determine whodunit when the head nurse is killed after revealing that the death of a patient under anaesthesia was no accident. Cockrill states at one point, "My presence lay over the hospital like a pall - I found it all tremendously enjoyable." After another murder attempt leaves a nurse dangerously ill he re-stages the operation in order to unmask the murderer

The trail of clues leads to a ramshackle old castle, owned by retired Army doctorCol. Redmayne. The detective on the scene is one Mr. Goodman, who has devoted 10 years of his life to bringing The Terror to justice.
