Shot at Dawn – John Rhode [1936]

£50.00

Product description

Paperback published by Collins for the Crime Club in the ‘White Circle’ Pocket Editions series. Fifth impression, April 1936 (first published 1934).

The story:
The motor cruiser Alondra came over the harbour bar at Riddinghithe with the last of the flood and dropped anchor for the night. The next morning, a passing fisherman saw the body of a man lying on the cabin roof. But who was the dead man?

John Rhode was a pseudonym of Cecil John Charles Street (1884-1964), who also wrote under the names of Miles Burton, Cecil Waye, and FOO (Forward Observation Officer). He published over 70 novels as John Rhode and over 100 altogether.

Paperback with dust jacket. The jacket is in one piece, though with several chips and tears (including a two-thirds tear at the spine) and a piece missing from the bottom of the spine, as photographed. The binding is cracked but holding.
