The 64 Thousand Murder

£40.00

Product description

Millions of people all over the British Isles watch pretty Rosalind Tresham as she answers the 32 Thousand Question on English History; millions of people admire her poise, her calm confidence. What they don't know is the intense human drama behind the girl's achievement- and her brave determination to go on and win the 64 Thousand Question. When George Wentworth, casually strolling in Trafalgar Square is pitched into one of the fountain pools, he finds himself at the beginning of an experience which turns his whole life upside down. For he soon discovers that evil influences are at work, conspiring to prevent Rosalind Tresham from winning that jackpot. This is only a glimpse of the excitement and mystery in Mr. Victor Gunn's unusual detective novel, in which Chief Inspector Bill Cromwell and Sergeant Johnny Lister play important parts. From the moment of the famous Scotland Yard pair's first appearance, the action becomes swift and tense, as Mr. Victor Gunn's many readers will expect.

Old sellotape marks in evidence. Old library stickers and the remains of on pastedown and FEP. Foreedge foxed and faded. Considerable stains on many pages, but binding is still tight and intact.
