William Heinemann, London 1957.
First British edition. Jacket Design by Stein.

This novel is written by Erle Stanley Gardner, creator of the Perry Mason mysteries writing under the pseudonym of A. A. Fair. Beware the Curves is one of the most complicated and fast moving of his mystery series featuring California private detective partners Bertha Cool (the tough one) and Donald Lam (the one with brains). This particular story is short, but very, very clever.
