Comments & Further Information

A UK paperback in very good condition for its age.  Originally published in 1949 this is the Penguin edition from 1957.  Heavy age tanning to pages and to insides of covers.  Creasing to spine.  Covers are grubby.  The book remains tightly bound.

SYNOPSIS:  “At a quiet resort on the French Riviera Anthony Tolworth, companion and agent of the exiled king of Althenia, lands from the king’s yacht in search of entertainment and remuneration for the royal household.  He meets a corpse on the beach in front of the Casino, inside which is Eve Raymond.  Because she is accused of the murder he tries to solve with crime with the help of his headmistress aunt and two interfering and typical small boys!”
