[nice clean book, minimal shelfwear; jacket shows a little wear along top and bottom edges and at a couple of corners]. Fourth in the series of comic mystery novels featuring Scotland Yard's Detective Chief Inspector Wilfred Dover, characterized by his "legendary inertia, foul manner, and striking ineptitude." The opening of Chapter Two describes a station sergeant's reaction to Dover's sudden appearance on the scene: "This great, fat, untidy yobbo didn't look like a detective chief inspector from New Scotland Yard but recruiting had been bad for donkey's years and you never knew."
