The Body in the Library

First published in 1942, and this edition was printed by Pan in 1959. This copy is the second printing, also from 1959.
Nearer and nearer to the bed the intruder stole...a finger and thumb ready to pick up a fold of skin, in the other hand the hypodermic was ready.

An unemotional voice, the voice of the law, said :No you don;t. I want that needle!"
The light switched on and from his pillows Conway Jefferson looked grimly at the murderer of Ruby Keene.
