London: Published for the Crime Club by Collins, 1942. [Detective Fiction] FIRST EDITION. Octavo (19 x 13cm), pp.192. Publisher's red cloth lettered in black in original pictorial dust-wrapper priced at 8s. A very good copy; both book and jacket are dusty and used, binding shows some of the expected lightening to the orange cloth in places, chipped to crown affecting the letter 'F'. This is the correct (and only) jacket priced at 8s. The price was reduced for the next impression. A perfectly acceptable copy of what is now quite a scarce first edition. A Hercule Poirot mystery, published in America as 'Murder in Retrospect'. Item #59654
