London: The Crime Club by Collins, 1956. [Detective Fiction] FIRST EDITION. Octavo (19 x 13cm), pp.256. Publisher's red cloth titled in black, original printed dust-wrapper. Some spotting, bookseller's ticket to rear pastedown, jacket price-clipped and lightly marked. Very Good. 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 #55130
