THE RED RIGHT HAND. Joel Townsley Rogers.


New York: Simon and Schuster, 1945. Octavo, cloth. First edition. "The nightmare setting of the story, its hallucinatory incidents, and it breathless prose all lend a kind of mythic grandeur to the events and help make the book on of the most distinguished in its genre."

"In thinking over the wonderful experience of reading THE RED RIGHT HAND, the reader can only marvel at how the author constructed such a baffling and complex plot without leaving a thread untied." - Pronzini and Muller, 1001 Midnights, The Aficionado's Guide to Mystery and Detective Fiction, pp. 688-689.
