The Punch & Judy Murders by Carter Dickson

Sir Henry Merrivale (better known to the public, and to his co-workers of the Military Intelligence Department as “H.M.”) had disappeared. Two of his young friends were to be married the following day. Then a telegram arrived:

MEET ME IMPERIAL HOTEL TORQUAY IMMEDIATELY EXPRESS LEAVES PADDINGTON 3:30 URGENT MERRIVALE.

At once everyone was precipitated into the Punch and Judy Murders… Hours later, the prospective bridegroom, now a fugitive from justice, and dressed in an unlawfully appropriated policeman’s uniform, stood at the open door of a small library, confronted with a corpse. He was wondering how he could escape from the house before the bona fide police arrived…
