Product description

Hardback with blue boards, published by Collins. Fifth impression, 1933 (first published 1930 under the title ‘Corpse in Canonicals’).

George Douglas Howard Cole (1889-1959) and his wife, Dame Margaret Isabel Cole née Postgate (1893-1980), were Fabians and socialist politicians who also took up detective story writing as a team, penning some 30 titles between 1925 and 1948.
