(price-clipped) [nice clean book, slight wear to extremities; jacket bumped and very slightly torn at top front hinge, otherwise bright and attractive]. Third in the series of comic mystery novels featuring Scotland Yard's Detective Chief Inspector Wilfred Dover, with the title character "as dyspeptic, unappealing, and insensitive as ever." In this adventure he is "sent off to isolated Thornwich in bleak mid-winter to look into an epidemic of lewd poison-pen letters." From page 12: "Some coarse-minded colleague had once said that [Dover] looked like a pregnant hippopotamus, but this was generally agreed to be grossly unfair to that animal."
