First edition. Publisher's presentation copy with signed card laid in. Jacket edges rubbed. Top page ridge faintly foxed, top page corners lightly bumped. 1951 Hard Cover. 252 pp. A story of murders in Canberra, Australia, takes Gilbert, musician-spy, in the employ of the Australian government, through successful sleuthing, if not personal satisfaction. The killing of the Minister for Internal Resources, the apparent suspicion attached to the son of the U. S. Ambassador, the killing of the dead man's widow, the complicity of her brother- add up to a brightly polished international note.
