This Detective Story Club classic includes an introduction by H. R. F. Keating, which first appeared in the Crime Club's 1985 'Disappearing Detectives' series.

Common sense may tell us that right must triumph, but until we reach the last page our harrowed sensibilities will not allow us to lay aside the book.' The Times 'However tastes may differ, most people ...
