Author's second mystery novel. Displaying very effectively, some of the most vivid and "in your face!" dust jacket artwork of it's time, signed "C.S." at the bottom of the front panel. As George Salter, the famous artist and dust jacket designer said ". ..a great number of jackets, too similar in style, will cancel each other out." There is certainly no danger of this unsophisticated - and very singular jacket design - ever being canceled out. Ref. Hubin (1994), p. 257; Heller, p.18.
