A near-fine first edition. Some bruising to top of spine, and foxing to the page block. In a near-fine unclipped dust jacket, with bruising to spine to match book, some minor chipping to spine and corners, and some discoloration to the back cover.
Lady Betty Calder is a prostitute and a blackmailer - or is it her sister, Glynis, using her name? Dr David Garth, her fiancé, knows he must find out the truth - especially when he blunders across Glynis' strangled body on Betty's property.
The police know she did it, but David knows she didn't, and he must outwit a cunning murderer and a hostile detective-inspector to prove it. What he discovers - about his best friend's wife, his medical assistant, and even his fiancée - make him wish the blackmailing Glynis had never lived.
