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 1940 by Collins. Read once very carefully.

SYNOPSIS:  “A woman is on trial for her life, accused of murder.  The twelve members of the jury each carry their own secret burden of guilt and prejudice which could affect the outcome.

In this extraordinary crime novel, we follow the trial through the eyes of the jurors as they hear the evidence and try to reach a unanimous verdict.  Will they find the defendant guilty, or not guilty?  And will the jurors’ decision be the correct one?
