Dalton (Moray) Death in the Cup.
London. Sampson Low, 1932
Katherine Dalton Renoir (‘Moray Dalton’) began her career in crime fiction in 1924, after which she published twenty-nine mysteries, the last in 1951. The majority of these feature her recurring sleuths, Scotland Yard inspector Hugh Collier and private inquiry agent Hermann Glide. All of the prewar titles are difficult to find in a jacket especially one as good as this. Brilliant dust-jacket art.
