A CRIME IN RHYME and Other Mysterious Fragments.
Edition: First printing, a trade paperback original.
West Sussex, UK: Frith House, (2000). SIGNED first edition - In this slim book, Brett fills in "a few gaps in the world of mystery fiction. During the Golden Age of crime, when murders were decorously perpetrated at country house weekend parties and investigated by impossibly learned aristocratic sleuths, nobody took the trouble to write a whodunnit in verse. Simon Brett remedies that. Also, regretting the fact that Jane Austen, T S Eliot and Dylan Thomas never found the time to write crime novels, Simon Brett does the job for them." Also included is a "cancelled draft of Agatha Christie's will and a missing chapter from Charles Dickens' Edwin Drood." SIGNED on the title page. 81 pp. plus a 2 pp list of his books. ISBN: 0-953841006.
Condition: Fine in glossy illustrated wrappers.
