(10),1-252,(2). 8vo, blue and tan cloth with blue lettering to front board and spine. Stamp to copyright page states that "this story was originally published in the Saturday Evening Post under the title 'Man From Japan'." "This new 'Col. PrimroseMystery Novel' might have well been called 'The New Mrs. Latham Mystery No vel', because Mrs. Latham plays almost as important a part in it as the Colonel. The scene is Hawaii, and practically all of the action takes place inand around a house high up on the mountainside above Honolulu. It is the s tory of a black-sheep American, whose family had lived in Hawaii for generations, but who went to Japan, and, sometime after Pearl Harbor, decided to come back and play traitor to his country. Mrs. Latham is present when he makes his first appearance in his family's house, she is present when his murdered body is discovered -- and disposed of -- and she is deeply involved in the circumstances that lead up to the second murder, that of a beautifulHawaiian-American girl who is engaged to marry an American aviator." - fro m the dustjacket.
