Christie, Agatha: Towards Zero
An Inspector Battle mystery. Battle appears in some Hercule Poirot stories, but this one does not have the little Belgian dandy.
This novel was first printed in December 1943 and this Pocket Books edition in 1947 when good paper was still in short supply. The pages are very slightly yellowed. The front cover is creased and has a hand-written price on it. The spine is torn at the bottom of both covers and some of the printing has been torn off. The flyleaf is loose but intact.
