Publication: Geoffrey Bles, 1936, London
First edition. Pseudonym of John George Haslette Vahey (1881- 1938). Fine, bright copy in dust jacket lightly chipped at spine ends, corners and extremities and with a few light creases to bottom area of rear cover. The fourth of seven novels written by Vahey (1881-1938) as Henrietta Clandon, a pseudonym he used exclusively while writing for Geoffrey Bles. An inter-War whodunit narrated by the culprit, who sends off a series of anonymously-written letters to residents of a small town, each bringing about a different set of tragic consequences. What Miss Alice believes she is doing is the good work of pointing out ... anonymously, of course ... her neighbor’s faults, so that they may be corrected. When one villager commits suicide after receiving one of these letters stating her fiancé was unfaithful, police try to discover the identity of the anonymous writer.
