This has a complicated publishing history, with differing versions and titles available.
It's also known as "Nude In Mink."
Here's a quote about the various editions out there:
"Sumuru was originally created for an eight part radio serial on the B.B.C. Rohmer rewrote the serial as a novel titled The Sins of Sumuru. The American paperback publisher, Fawcett, which was looking for material for first edition paperbacks saw great possibilities for the character and published it as Nude in Mink in May, 1950. It sold so well they had a second printing the same month and they wanted more. Another series was born.
"There are nine titles, but only five novels. The Fawcett Gold Medal paperbacks are the true first editions.
"The first four books were given different titles for the subsequent British hardcover editions.The British editions also differed slightly in text. Some editing was apparently done in the American Gold Medal editions and the text was restored for the British hardcovers."
Are you clear on this? You'll be tested later.
I hope you enjoy it.
