The Mask of Dimitrios

£12.99

Product description

The Mask of Dimitrios is an intriguing book that whilst it is a murder mystery, it is also a tongue and cheek look at the genre itself and at 1930's Europe. This is the Folio Society's 2011 edition introduced by Simon Winder and drawn in a 1930's film noir style by Paul Blow. The condition is good, no signs of use but it is missing it's hardback case that is often covering Folio editions of books.

'English crime novelist Charles Latimer is travelling in Istanbul when he makes the acquaintance of Turkish police inspector Colonel Haki. It is from him that he first hears of the mysterious Dimitrios - an infamous master criminal, long wanted by the law, whose body has just been fished out of the Bosphorus. Fascinated by the story, Latimer decides to retrace Dimitrios' steps across Europe to gather material for a new book. But, as he gradually discovers more about his subject's shadowy history, fascination tips over into obsession. And, in entering Dimitrios' criminal underworld, Latimer realizes that his own life may be on the line.'
