Printing Details

First edition, hardback bound in the original blue cloth boards with printed titling to spine and upper board. 19 × 13cm, 318pp.

A classic crime thriller from Patricia Wentworth. Lost on a foggy country road, James stumbles upon a dark house, where he meets a frightened woman and mysterious gunshots, and the case takes a strange turn when he encounters the woman once again, now with a different name, and a colleague turns up dead.


A reading copy only. The blue cloth is creased and faded to the spine, and rubbed to the edges. The pages are tanned and the endpapers and pastedowns are scruffy. Binding pulled in a few places but still a strong readable copy.
