First edition. Author's first book. Fine in dust jacket. The townspeople decided that John Smith was an odd one. Although young and educated, he chose to live alone in a falling-down cottage, and he'd see noone ... except his dog. This just wasn't normal. When Meyrick, a tractor driver, found the dead body of a young girl in a field, he immediately contacted Inspector Finch. And then Meyrick remembered that the day before he'd seen a man and his dog walking across the fields, near where the girl's body was found! The girl was a local girl, and Smith, the outsider and odd one, was a suspect.
