Best things about this cover:
- Bored? High? Dead? High? Mannequin?
- Yes, that A. A. Milne.
- You might remember this as one of the mystery novels that Chandler absolutely decimates in "The Simple Art of Murder"
Best things about this back cover:
- Mmm. Key porn.
- The nightmarish carpet pattern continues.
- "The Dell Great Mystery Library" was decidedly conservative, their covers respectable and dull.
