London, Hodder & Stoughton, 1939. Proof. Paperback. A very good copy. Plain wraps. One of Berkeley's last published novels under his own name. An uncommon book in itself, moreso in the present format, from an important writer in the British crime tradition. Wrappers a little soiled, but not too bad. Slight lean and some creasing to corners and spine. [7886, Hyraxia Books].
