First edition. A superb collection of stories, frequently with a twist worthy of the best tales of the unexpected, and the eponymous story being a crime/mystery thriller involving a jewel theft. An uncommon find. The book is reasonably firmly bound in the publisher's decorative blue cloth, the extremities are bumped and rubbed and there are some minor marks. The text block is slightly toned and foxed, with a bookplate to the front pastedown and cracking at points.
