London: Published for The Crime Club by Collins, 1935. [Mystery novel] FIRST EDITION. Octavo (18 x 13cm), pp.252; [4], advertisements. Hand-bound in half mid-green calf, spine gilt-lettered in six compartments with raised bands, matching green cloth sides. Contents clean, minor toning to edges of textblock, binding as new. A scarce title in first edition. Hercule Poirot is a passenger on board a flight from Paris to Croydon. Some time before landing, one of the passengers, a moneylender named Madame Giselle, is found dead. Initially, a reaction to a wasp sting is postulated, but Poirot spies the true cause of death: a poison-tipped dart, apparently fired from a blowpipe. It becomes apparent that the victim has been murdered. Item #53285
