Dead Man's Folly (A Hercule Poirot mystery).

London: The Crime Club by Collins, 1956. [Detective Fiction] FIRST EDITION. Octavo (19 x 13cm), pp.256. Elegantly hand-bound in half black calf over matching cloth sides, spine gilt-lettered in six compartments with raised bands. A few small spots to foot of text block, exterior unmarked. A near fine copy in an attractive recent leather binding. Ariadne Oliver, the famous crime writer who bears a passing resemblance to Christie, sets up a murder mystery event at a local fete, and invites her old friend Hercule Poirot to visit. Unsurprisingly, the party provokes a real murder. A salutary lesson in Sod's law: if you intend to host a murder mystery party, do not invite real detectives. Item #52600
