A fine first edition, in the original binding. There are tape marks to both front and rear flyleaves. In a very good unclipped dust jacet, with some wear to the spine folds and corners. Thre is a small tear to the top and bottom of the front cover, and to the top of the back cover. There are small chips missing from the top and bottom of the rear cover near the spine.
In these six stories, Simon Templar's uncanny ability to find an adventure wherever he goes leads him into some very strange affairs. In Bermuda, he has to solve the case of a missing husband; in England, he has to stop a husband whose wives tend not to last long. He also deals with a murder in a nudist colony, hunts for oil, matches wits with a woman as ruthless as himself and goes fishing for a drug-smuggling ring.
