A B format (130 x 198 mm) paperback.  The title was originally published by Herbert Jenkins in 1941.  This new edition, with an introduction by Curtis Evans, was published by Dean Street 2018.  Read once very carefully.

An Inspector Knollis mystery.

SYNOPSIS:  “When Mr Lomas went to the Chief Constable of Burnham and described his symptoms, Sir Wilfred Burrows diagnosed nothing more serious than a bad case of nerves.  Later that day Mr Lomas’s body was recovered from the water at Willow Lock; yet death was not by drowning.  Sir Wilfred recounted the interview to Inspector Knollis, who, realizing the significance of the evidence, was satisfied that Mr Lomas was a victim of cocaine poisoning.  In this, his first mystery, Knollis sets about the task of unmasking the murderer – with what we come to learn is his customary acuity.”
