First edition, first printing. Original red cloth with gilt titles to the spine, in dustwrapper. A very good or better copy, the binding square and firm, the cloth a little faded to the spine. The contents, with faint spotting and offsetting to the endpapers, are otherwise clean throughout and without stamps or inscriptions. Complete with the good rubbed, nicked, torn and creased price-clipped dustwrapper which has cup rings to the front and rear panels and several chips, the largest of which takes the title at the head of the spine. Scarce in the dustwrapper. .

A pastoral crime drama which was the inspiration for the 1963 Hammer Films production 'Paranoiac' starring Janette Scott, Oliver Reed and Sheila Burrell, and a BBC television adaptation in 1986. (Hubin).
