312 pages. Octavo. Stated 19th impression. Red cloth stamped in black on the spine. Some spotting to the text block along edge and top edge. Binding is otherwise sound.
Unclipped dust jacket (5s. Net) is rubbed along edges and chipped at corners. Heavy creasing along the top edge. Photos available upon request. Ghost mark of a previous owners sticker on front of jacket. Spine is unfaded, however, and colors are bright.

Despite the wear, still a very good copy in a good Crime Club jacket.
