Publication: Houghton Mifflin Company, 1934, Boston and New York
First edition. Author's third mystery novel. Laid in is a nice full-page holograph letter dated November 14, 1934, written to Mrs. Keene, probably pulp writer Day Keene’s wife, thanking her for clippings in a scrapbook, presumably biographical. A trace of rubbing to the foot of spine, else a near fine copy in dust jacket with small chips to the spine ends, light wear to the corners and a closed tear to bottom edge of the rear panel that has been internally reinforced with cellophane tape. In the Delaware Valley of southeastern Pennsylvania four wealthy young people are involved in a strange mystery that threatens their lives and everything they hold worth while. Their enemy is unknown but someone is trying to kill them.
