[ex-lending library book (American Lending Library Inc., "Never Sold / Only Loaned"), related stamping on endpapers only; well-worn but still solidly bound and internally clean; jacket flaps are securely glued to pastedowns, and the jacket itself is backed with brown paper, edgeworn, stained at spine, soiled on rear cover, etc.--and yet the front panel art is relatively unblemished and quite attractive]. "Who was the man called Conner, bank robber and murderer, who was hanged at Wandsworth Prison? What connections did he have with the murderer of the Shabby Peddler in the garden of Janet Lacey's country cottage? Why did he search the place so thoroughly before he was killed? And what was the significance of the stanza from the Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam?" These questions (and no doubt a few more) are posed and answered in this vintage thriller, from a prolific British writer who was once called "the new Edgar Wallace," no doubt after Wallace himself was safely dead.
