The Fatal 5 Minutes


Other works by R. A. J. WALLING

Publication: William Morrow & Company, 1932, New York

First U. S. edition. Fine, tight, bright copy in a bright, crisp dust jacket with a few tiny chips to the spine ends and corners, and light vertical creasing to the spine panel. "At 6:40: Wellington Burnet, wealthy insurance man, was in his study alive. At 6:45: His body, showing the marks of a terrific struggle, was found lifeless." "In those fatal five minutes, no one of the large house party at Midwood could have entered that room, killed Burnet, and got safely away. Yet, someone had!" A nice copy of this Haycraft/Queen Cornerstone mystery.
