224 pp, small 8vo, hard cover in dust jacket. "Would you - in peace time - kill a man to save innocent lives, if that was the only means by which those lives could be saved? And, if you did so, would it be murder? It certainly would be if, at the actual time you killed, you did not do so in immediate defence of yourself or someone else. (This book) deals with the trial for murder of Alec Morland, who is alleged to have been guilty of killing a man in circumstances of that kind..."
