The first time he saw her she stole his heart. The second time she was dead.
Classic crime from one of the greats of the Detection Club

When Detective Arthur Crook first saw Stella Foster he knew she was marked for trouble. Stella was irresistible to men, a woman who loved laughter and pleasure – a woman, in fact, after Mr Crook’s heart. The next time he saw her, Stella was dead.

To find her killer, London’s genial detective pursues his unorthodox way through a maze of tangled and conflicting clues to solve a clever and brutal crime of passion.
