First Edition (in dustjacket with 'Second Large Printing' plug at top front panel). Asey Mayo's third case. "Victoria Ballard is recuperating from pneumonia at a remote Cape Cod cottage when members of a traveling acting troupe show up, looking for their new employer. Since the fog has come in, and there's no phone in the cottage, Vic agrees to let them stay the night. But morning finds one of the group dead, and everyone is a suspect. Fortunately, Asey Mayo is visiting his cousin Syl, practically next door, and is able to investigate. But each clue he finds points to a different person, and each trail proves a different suspect innocent. Yet someone shot the dead man!" A very scarce title. A somewhat tired looking copy, general shelf wear, cloth nick at lower spine end, worn at lower cover corners, in attractive almost Near Fine price-clipped dustjacket (that had been stored separate from book).
