Elegantly hand-bound in half mid-green calf, spine gilt-lettered in six compartments with raised bands, cloth sides. First and final leaf a little toned else fine. "Mrs McGinty was dead. She was hit on the back of the head with some sharp, heavy implement and her pitifully small savings were taken... The inimitable Poirot, with his slightly comical aspect, his "little grey cells" and his genuinely warm heart, returns in an ingenious detective novel that once again earns for Agatha Christie the justifiable epithet of "incomparable"."
