Publication: London: Heinemann, 1967,
First edition. 8vo. Fine in fine dust jacket. Filipino barman, Ramon, witnesses a 94-year-old woman falling to her death from seven stories up. Strangely, he doesn't call the police but instead goes to the room from where she fell and cleans up the scene, wiping away all traces of foul play. Why would an innocent bystander go to such pains? The investigation of the death falls to Supt. Mike Yeadings. He begins searching for a link between a teenage drug victim, a missing care assistant and an unidentified corpse, and discovers further mysteries behind the glass wall of the luxury penthouse.
