Very good first edition with impression to side of boards, some bruising to spine, a stripe of bleaching to top of spine, and slight lean to spine. In a very good unclipped dust jacket with some chipping to corners and spine, some brusing along edges, and some loss of colour to the back of jacket.



About

Timothy Kinnit needs the help of private detective Albert Campion. Kinnit is rich, handsome and successful, but his past is a mystery to him and he needs Campion to find out how it connects him to the notorious Turk Street Mile slum. In addition, his own illustrious adopted family has a sinister secret of its own - involving a murderous nineteenth-century governess - that must also be brought to light by Campion's investigations.


As urbane as Lord Wimsey…as ingenious as Poirot… Meet one of crime fiction’s Great Detectives, Mr Albert Campion.
