Description

Publishers' Original Binding, Scarce, With Dustwrapper

A scarce edition, dated circa 1941 via the list of titles to the dust wrapper rear wrap.

A scarce edition of Christie's work, in the publisher's original price unclipped dust wrapper.

'Easy to Kill' was first published in the US in 1939 by Dodd, Mead and Company, who for this later reprint partnered with Grosset & Dunlap. They did this in order to outsource publishing of later editions while extending the income life of a title. Grosset & Dunlap's partnership with Dodd began in the 1920s, and continued into the early 1940s.

Published in the UK under the title 'Murder is Easy', this novel concerns the efforts of a retired police officer, Luke Fitzwilliam, to discover the identity of a serial killer active in the village of Wychwood under Ashe.

Christie's Superintendent Battle makes an appearance at the end of the work.
