First Edition stated. Uncommon Nurse Keate murder mystery. Basis for the 1936 Warner Brothers film directed by Frank McDonald and starring Lyle Talbot and Marguerite Churchill. "A man has been shot, cleaning a gun she's told, in the shoulder. But he implies that it was something far more sinister. And when he ends up dead, this time the intent is obvious, well, Sarah is anxious to leave but ends up staying with the family. A family that is aristocratic, but very odd." Almost Near Fine, in Very Good dustjacket, some shallow loss at top spine end, nicks and closed tears at lower spine and flap corners.
