Comments & Further Information

A UK paperback in fair condition for its age.  Originally published in 1937, this is a reprint from 1949.  The covers are grubby and there is considerable foxing to covers (both internally and externally).  Tanning to pages and some foxing to last couple of pages.  The cover has detached a little at the base of the book spine.

SYNOPSIS:  “Inspector Quill patiently questions members of the Ballet Stroganoff.  The shooting of their chief dancer Anton as he was performing Petroushka was itself quite exciting, but quite incidental.  What was more important was the upsetting of ‘Affaires’ that ensued, the summing up of Anton’s qualities or lack of qualities, and above all the problem as to who should dance Petroushka in his place.”
