First published in 1942.
A Michael Dundas mystery.
“Michael Dundas, couturier and detective, tackles a pretty nearly bomb-proof case in this one—a murder that could only have been committed by the wrong man. He solves it, though, and very neatly, too, in a story marked by its fine characterization of all the people in it, and especially by its corrosive portrayal of a woman whose very virtue was poisonous. It is an exceptionally good piece of work.” (Baltimore, Maryland, Evening Sun, October 12, 1942)
