Basis for 1951 movie of the same name starring John Bailey and Michael Denison (and including Patrick Troughton of Dr. Who fame.); "Marion Sharpe and her mother seem an unlikely duo to be found on the wrong side of the law. Quiet and ordinary, they have led a peaceful and unremarkable life at their country home, The Franchise. Unremarkable that is, until the police turn up with a demure young woman on their doorstep. Not only does Betty Kane accuse them of kidnap and abuse, she can back up her claim with a detailed description of the attic room in which she was kept, right down to the crack in its round window."

A lovely copy with faint edgewear and very light cover creases. No spine creases, page edges palest yellow.; Inspector Alan Grant investigates this nightmarish case (too many clues, too many motives) of a young woman found dead on a southern coast of England beach. This first novel published under the Tey pseudonym was the basis for 'Young and Innocent' (aka 'The Girl was Young') featuring Nova Pilbeam and Derrick De Marney. It was Alfred Hitchcock's favourite amongst his British films.; "Beneath the sea cliffs of the south coast, suicides are a sad but common fact. Yet even the hardened coastguard knows something is wrong when a beautiful young film actress is found lying dead on the beach one morning. Inspector Grant has to take a more professional attitude: death by suicide, however common, has to have a motive -- just like murder..."
