Notes

First edition, first impression, in a bright example of the notably uncommon jacket. They Found Him Dead is the third of Heyer's detective novels to feature Superintendent Hannasyde and Sergeant Hemingway who "as middle-class crime professionals were unusual at a time when writers of detective novels had largely so far used upper-class amateurs as their sleuths" (Orlando).
