1959, first edition but with marked covers
First edition, first printing. Hardback. 20 × 13cm, 246pp.
Dame Lettie Colston is the first of her circle to receive insinuating anonymous phone calls. Neither she, nor her friends, wish to be reminded of their mortality, and their geriatric feathers are thoroughly ruffled. As the caller's activities become more widespread, old secrets are dusted off, exposing post and present duplicities, self-deception and blackmail. Nobody is above suspicion.
The cloth binding is faded and heavily marked to the edges but the contents are in very good condition, with clean pages and secure binding.
