London: Herbert Jenkins, (1942). First edition. Hardcover. Near Fine / Near Fine. Original orange cloth, lettered in black to the front panel and spine. An excellent copy of a very good vintage mystery novel. Just a hint of wear to the foot of the spine, else fine. The evocative dust jacket art by Sears bears a striking resemblence to my Elementary School Bus Driver - 25 to life - Ohio State Penitentiary.
