New York, NY: Dodd, Mead & Company, 1962. [Crime Mystery] FIRST US EDITION. Octavo (21 x 14cm), pp. 242 . Publisher's red paper over boards with white titles to spine. With the illustrated dust-jacket. Small ownership label to front pastedown. Light toning and spotting to edges, otherwise a crisp, clean copy. A little light wear to binding extremities, and moderate wear and chipping to price-clipped jacket edges. Very good. A masterful 'strange tale' in which 'The Pale Horse' is the name of both the village pub and a secret organisation which kills by black magic. The successful crime writer Ariadne Oliver (an exaggerated version of Christie herself) is called in to unravel the mysterious happenings... This is the final case (and perhaps the best) for Mrs. Oliver, who first appears with Parker Pyne in two short stories, and in seven full-length novels (six of them with the great detective Hercule Poirot).
