Notes

First edition, first impression, of Williams' popular detective novel featuring Trevor Dene, a "young Detective Sergeant from Scotland Yard who has Holmesian powers of observation and deduction" (Twentieth Century Crime & Mystery Writers). Williams, initially a foreign affairs and war correspondent for The Daily Mail, was described by Harold Nicolson as "far too intelligent to be employed by such a paper" (Nicolson, p. 60). Published in the US in the same year. An uncommon work, with just four copies traced institutionally in the UK.
