Notes

First edition, first impression, of this noted rarity, and particularly so in the jacket. Most of the first edition stock was destroyed during the Blitz when the Germans bombed the Hodder and Stoughton warehouse. This is Ambler's most famous work, and a Haycraft-Queen Cornerstone in detective fiction.
