Collins Crime Club, 1944.
First edition, first printing. 8vo. Orange boards with black titles. Pictorial dustwrapper by Atkinson. A near fine copy with clean boards. Dusting to topedge. Light bubbling to cloth at top margin of rear board o/w fine. No inscriptions. The fine dustwrapper has a couple of tiny closed tears. Unpriced front flap - not clipped. None of the usual toning to the spine. A remarkable survival with no sunning to spine.
The romantic life of a tennis player, a false accusation of theft against a schoolgirl and a suicide attempt are the backdrop to a house party at a seaside clifftop house which results in murder.
