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..."

'I love the Alan Grant mysteries'. -Karen K., 'enjoyed it tremendously.'-Sheila This author's books recommended by *many* other members of the DE Stevenson email discussion group including Elizabeth B., Jane S., Susan D, Beatrice H., Julie B. and Kristi J. Image is actual copy on offer.
