First edition, first printing. Publisher's original grey cloth with red titles to the spine, in dustwrapper. An excellent near fine copy, the binding firm, the cloth with with a few spots to the cloth but otherwise fresh. The contents, with a couple of spots to the front and rear pastedowns are otherwise clean throughout and without previous owner's marks. Complete with the lightly rubbed and nicked dustwrapper that remains without loss or large tears. Not price-clipped (7s 6d net to the front flap). An attractive example of a scarce war-time title in dustwrapper.

Considered by many to be the author's highlight, introducing the barrister and amateur sleuth, Francis Pettigrew. (Hubin).
