Product description

The Lady with the Limp - Sydney Horler (1946) - vintage hardback thriller
 
A mid-1940s hardcover edition of a thriller / mystery novel originally published in 1944, complete with its original colour pictorial dustjacket. "Stranded in the country with his faithful Benny Bannister, Tiger Standish is compelled to stay the night at a West Sussex guest house, where he finds himself caught up in a local mystery connected with the disappearance of three villagers. His curiosity, and his investigations, lead him to the Old Manor, owned by the fabulously wealthy Miss Constant Trelawney, the woman of the title. The Lady with the Limp turns out to be the leader of a surviving band of Fascist enthusiasts, as fanatical as any dyed-in-the-blood Nazis..."
 
Although this original vintage volume shows assorted signs of age (see condition description below), it remains complete and fully legible, and as such would make a great addition to a collection of vintage thrillers - or a very suitable accessory for a recreation of a mid- to late 1940s period room setting.
