Publisher's cloth in illustrated dust-wrapper by Vernon L Soper. Contents toned as expected, jacket very lightly worn with a few small nicks. A most attractive copy of a fragile and cheaply produced book. Very good. Includes a Hercule Poirot story. 'Surely one of the best-loved and most widely read detective fiction writers of all time. Her tales are diverse and subtly contrived and in Miss Jean Marple, her gentle little spinster sleuth, and M. Hercule Poirot, the precise and dignified Belgian detective, she has created two of the greatest characters ever to grace the genre'. Item #60559
