No. 99
London John Macqueen 1901 - 8vo. Publisher's red cloth titled and decorated in fine sinister style (corpse in a pool of blood, hand gripping knife, that sort of thing) decorated in cream, black and gilt to spine and front board. A strikingly elegant looking object, minor edgewear and scuffing to extremities, clean and bright, a very good copy indeed. Griffiths is one of those bewhiskered Victorian chaps who seem to have done everything, decorated war hero (for Sebastopol no less), world traveller, career soldier and British prison historian all before settling down to a life writing pretty crisp detective novels. "Macqueen. 3s. 6d.)—Here we have another detective-story, and so another difficulty in the task of reviewing. We will confess that the secret of the denouement is well kept, and that till the scent grew positively hot we did not know who was about to be run down." Spectator 1902. ebay [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
