First U. S. edition. Pseudonym of Anthony Berkeley Cox. A fine, bright, square copy in a sharp, bright dust jacket with a touch of wear to the head of spine and the top front corner. "The first of the silk stocking murders was thought a suicide when an unknown chorus girl was found strangled with her own stocking. Roger Sheringham, popular novelist and amateur detective worked out a different theory. The second of the silk stocking murders strengthened his conviction, and the third -- that of Lady Ursula, brilliant, modern, sophisticated fiancee of wealthy James Pleydell -- confirmed it with a vengeance." A very early Crime Club mystery being published in the first year of the Crime Club's existence. This is an exceptional copy.
