This is a first printing of the British Library re-issue B format paperback (130 x 198 mm). Introduction by Martin Edwards. The title was originally published in 1938 by Faber & Faber. Read once very carefully.
SYNOPSIS: “Great Barwick’s least popular man is murdered on a train. Twelve jurors sit in court. Four suspects are identified – but which of them is on trial?
This novel has all the makings of a classic murder mystery, but with a twist: as Attorney-General Anstruther Blayton leads the court through prosecution and defence, Inspector Fenby carries out his investigation. All this occurs while the identify of the figure in the dock is kept tantalisingly out of reach.”
