Indianapolis: The Bobbs-Merrill Company, (1928). First edition. Hardcover. Fine / Fine. An extremely clean, bright and solid copy of this excellent murder mystery. "The whole family desire the death of the miserly father and grand-father. They are deep in financial difficulties and impending law-suits and imminent embarrassment. It is with a sense of anticipation that they all depart for Mallow Park, called to the death-bed of the patriarch. ... And then - the old man takes a turn for the better, definitely on the mend. ... And then - he is found dead - poisoned." A lovely copy of a solid English procedural. First Edition statement to the copyright page.
