First U. K. edition. Originally printed in Australia in 1939, and later in the U. S. in 1943. All printings use the same title. Foxing to the fore-edges and to a few front and rear end pages, else near fine in dust jacket, with very minor wear to the foot of spine. Three men set out from a small Australian seaside town for an ordinary day's fishing ... and simply vanish. There are no clues to their fate, until another fisherman hauls in a gruesome catch ... the head of one of the men, with a bullet hole in its temple. Insp. Napoleon "Bony" Bonaparte investigates.
