New York: E. P. Dutton & Company, (1933). First American edition. Hardcover. Fine / Near Fine. Original green cloth, lettered in black to the front panel and spine. An unusualy fine and crisp copy with true corners. The compelling dust jacket is equally fine, in all respects, though it is price-clipped. Charles Barry is the pseudonym of Charles Bryson, per Hubin. "When the clock struck three in the morning in the church tower of the village of Crawley, England, a man was killed in the cellar of the home of Dexter Benham. His daughter Phyllis awoke suddenly and reached for the electric light, but it was dead. Groping through the house, she descended to the cellar, and on her way met Mr. Glaister, her father's guest, who was also investigating the blown-out fuse." A shot is fired and a man is found dead. A lovely copy of a really good English procedural murder mystery.
