In the RARE D/W priced 7/6 net to the spine (as called for). The slightly chipped D/W has been reinforced to the verso in several places with water-based brown paper tape (not sellotape).

New York: Lancer Books. Very Good. N.D.. First Thus. Softcover. # 73647. The first Mycroft mystery. VG - Creased from storage across the font cover, slight slant. The photo is of the actual book. Entered into the Haycraft Queen Cornerstones and is considered a masterpiece in the genre. On 22 February 1955, the American Broadcasting Company presented "The Sting of Death", an adaptation of the novel starring Boris Karloff as Mr. Mycroft, as an episode of The Elgin TV Hour. The novel was loosely adapted into a 1967 British horror film, The Deadly Bees, directed by Freddie Francis but a script re-write weakened the connection. ; 8vo .
