This is a first printing of the British Library re-issue B format paperback (130 x 198 mm). Introduction by Martin Edwards. The titles were originally published in 1942 for Death Knows No Calendar and 1944 for Death in White Pyjamas both by Cassell & Co.    Read once very carefully.

Contains two novels.

SYNOPSIS:  “Death in White Pyjamas – a theatre-owner, a ‘slightly sinister’ producer, a burgeoning playwright and a cast of ego-driven actors have all gathered at a country home to read through the promising script for Pigs in Porcelain.  Before the production ever reaches the stage, one of their number is found murdered in the grounds wearing what mysteriously seems to be somebody else’s white pyjamas.

In Death Knows No Calendar, investigating a deadly shooting with no shooter in a locked artist’s studio, detective fiction enthusiast Major Tom Boddy has a long day ahead of him.  With four colourful suspects to scrutinise, and not one but two impossible elements of the crime to solve, this extremely rare and thoroughly entertaining mystery is long overdue its return to print.”
