Murder by Thirst is the eight short story in the sixth anthology of Biggles Air Police short stories entitled Biggles of the Interpol. The anthology was first published in 1957 by Brockhampton. In spite of the attractive possiblities of a series of stories set around international police cooperation as suggested by the "Interpol" in the title, there are only two foreign policemen Biggles deals with in the entire anthology. He deals with Marcel Brissac in several stories. This story contains the only other foreign policeman, and he doesn't even get a name!

SynopsisEdit

Two Australian music students in London tell Biggles that a well-known bad character, "Black Jack Barnes", was in London. Barnes was supposedly missing with a British prospector in the deserts of Western Australia, but somehow had managed to travel to Britain on the same flight as the two students.
