Before she could touch him she saw it—the handle of a weapon sticking out between his shoulder-blades. Playwright Martin Pitt’s acclaimed new play, The Lily Flower, is having its London premiere. When the curtain rises, in attendance are the lovely Julia Dallas; Lord Charles Kulligrew; absent-minded professor Edward Milk and his opinionated spinster sister, Agatha; and Julia’s friend Benvenuto Brown, the accomplished artist and amateur sleuth. Before the evening is through, rave notices for the play will have to sit beside the reports of a grisly murder which takes place during the performance itself.

What Dread Hand? was originally published in 1932. This new edition features an introduction by crime fiction historian Curtis Evans.

“Miss Gill is a consummate artist … [Her work] may be unhesitatingly recommended to detective fiction fans and others who want to be converted.” Brooklyn Eagle
