This is one of my favorites of Millar's mysteries. She tricked me and I always admire that in a mystery writer.

UPDATE: All of Margaret Millar's novels will have been reprinted in omnibus editions from Soho Syndicate by the end of 2018. I'm eagerly awaiting the reissue of her earliest books in the volume they've called Collected Millar: The First Detectives due in Aug 15, 2017. It will include THE WEAK-EYED BAT and THE INVISIBLE WORM neither of which has been reprinted since their original publication back in the 1940s! I've never been able to find a copy of either book since I've been reading mysteries dating all the way back to my teen days in the 1970s.

Thanks for the update, John! I had seen that Soho news release a while back and promptly forgotten about it. But yes, this is a wonderful project Soho is doing - I'm looking forward to reading some of those, too!
