LAST ITEM HELD MATCHING THIS TITLE STATED:
Staples Press, London - first UK edition, 1951. hardcover, 5¼" x 8", lacking jacket. Book in VERY GOOD condition. Pale-blue cloth-bound boards with gold type to spine, publisher's logo in gold to front, and blue patterned endpapers. A detective novel? Well, there are detectives in it. Or a thriller? Certainly something very gruesome goes on. Or even a melodrama? Hardly, because there is too much that is alive in the activity and setting of the book. Sometimes macabre, sometime flippant, and always liable to dissolve into joyous atmospherics, Georgius defeats categorization. He has taken a 'detective' situation, given it a 'thriller' treatment, and brought it to life in a Parisian atmosphere that ranges fantastically from the world of the Grand Guignol to the boulevard cafes and the Metro.
