Carr, John Dickson - Captain Cut-Throat

London, Hamish Hamilton, 1955.  First UK edition.  Someone is on a killing spree, eliminating Napoleon's aides. British POW Alan Hepburn is forced to investigate and match wits with the emperor himself as well as the wily Fouche. Historical mystery at its best! Corners bumped, binding could be tighter.  Dust jacket shows wear and chipping to extremities and small closed tears to front panel.  $13.00.
