RICHARDS, Francis Call it Coincidence London, John Long, 1962.

8vo. Original black cloth, lettered in red and white to spine, with illustrated dust wrapper depicting a woman with red hair and oddly green skin in a state of shock/cross-eyed bemusement; pp.192; a great copy with only some minor scuffing to the endpapers and a little repair to the lower rear panel of the dust wrapper.
First edition, with a review slip from the publisher John Long laid in.
Call it Coincidence is such a fantastic mystery book that the blurb gives you almost no idea what to expect from the plot, despite using lots of words. Written by husband and wife crime-writing duo Frances & Richard Lockridge, under their joint pseudonym "Francis Richards", the novel is a riotous blend of dastardly actresses, secret phone calls, car rides in the rain and identity confusion. This is a particularly nice copy in the stunning (and perhaps unintentionally amusing) dustwrapper by Barbara Walton.
