Publication: Faber and Faber, 1967, London
First edition. Author's third mystery novel. As new, unread copy in a bright unfaded dust jacket. Famous mystery writer, Maurice Seton, is found dead at the bottom of a small boat -- both hands chopped off at the wrists. Although the post mortem shows that Seton died from natural causes, Dalgliesh is of a different opinion. An exceptional copy of a scarce title.
