London, Michael Joseph, 1963. Reprint of the 1954 edition. All the evidence points to Gilbert Essex as the murderer of Ellen Winslow. He is shockingly acquitted due to the circumstantial nature of the evidence. Then another murder comes to light, then Essex himself is killed. The author, a former lawyer himself, tells a sordid tale with wit and grace. Boards slightly bowed, corners bumped. Some staining to DJ with chipping to extremities and miniscule tear to top spine. $15.00.
