Dust jacket by Gavin L. O'Keefe



When André Marceau, known midget-hater, was found in the middle of his newly-tamped croquet field, garroted by an apparently small, helicopter-flying infant, Scotland Yard’s first theory was that a midget had done the deed. After all, Marceau had advocated the violent strangulation of all Lilliputians years before. But reporter Alec Snide vowed that before the Yard’s account of the crime was published he would come up with the true story—and beat their deadline! Thus begins the masterpiece of Harry Stephen Keeler.


This 370-page trade paperback contains the complete text of the original novel written in 1935. A second solution to the case is presented in X. JONES - OF SCOTLAND YARD.
