Angel street, a Victorian thriller in three acts by Patrick Hamilton ( Book )
8 editions published between 1942 and 1966 in English and held by 639 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This play tells the demoniac story of the Manninghams of Angel Street. Under the guise of kindliness, handsome Mr. Manningham is torturing his wife into insanity. He accuses her of petty aberrations that he has arranged himself; and since her mother died of insanity, she is more than half convinced that she, too, is going out of her mind. While her diabolical husband is out of the house, a benign police inspector visits her and ultimately proves to her that her husband is a maniacal criminal suspected of a murder committed fifteen years ago in the same house, and that he is preparing to dispose of her. Then starts the game of trying to uncover the necessary evidence against Mr. Manningham. It is a thrilling and exciting melodramatic game. - Story of the play
The slaves of solitude by Patrick Hamilton ( Book )
30 editions published between 1947 and 2014 in English and held by 584 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"England in the middle of World War II, a war that seems fated to go on forever, a war that has become a way of life. Heroic resistance is old hat. Everything is in short supply, and tempers are even shorter. Overwhelmed by the rigors of the Blitz, middle-aged Miss Roach has retreated to the relative safety and stupefying boredom of the suburban town of Thames Lockdon from which she commutes to a publishing job in London. She lives in a boardinghouse run by Miss Payne. There the savvy, sensible, decent, but all-too-meek Miss Roach endures the gaseous speechifying and weird dinner-table interrogations of Mr. Thwaites and relieves her solitude by drinking and necking with a wayward American lieutenant. Life is almost bearable until Vicki Kugelman, a seeming friend, moves into the adjacent room. That's when Miss Roach's troubles really begin. Recounting an epic battle of wills in the claustrophobic confines of the boardinghouse, Patrick Hamilton's The Slaves of Solitude, with its delightfully improbable heroine, is one of the finest and funniest books ever written about the trials of a lonely heart." -- book cover

Twenty thousand streets under the sky : a London trilogy by Patrick Hamilton ( Book )
20 editions published between 1935 and 2014 in English and held by 365 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Patrick Hamilton may be best known now for the plays Rope and Gaslight and for the classic Alfred Hitchcock and George Cukor movies they inspired, but in his heyday he was no less famous for his brooding tales of London life ... Twenty Thousand Streets Under the Sky is a tale of obsession and betrayal that centers on a seedy pub in a run-down part of London. Bob the waiter skimps and saves and fantasizes about writing a novel, until he falls for the pretty prostitute Jenny and blows it all. Kindly Ella, Bob's co-worker, adores Bob, but is condemned to enjoy nothing more than the attentions of the insufferable Mr. Eccles; Jenny, out on the street, is out of love, hope, and money. We watch with pity and horror as these three vulnerable and yet compellingly ordinary people meet and play out bitter comedies of longing and frustration."--Book cover

The setting is an apartment in Mayfair, London in the 1920s. The story, based loosely on the 1924 Leopold and Loeb murder case in the USA, is about two students, who murder fellow student Ronald Kentley as an expression of their supposed intellectual superiority.

The killers' pseudo-homosexual relationship is hidden behind the screen
