Pages 319-323 were originally sealed between orange paper wrappers printed with the following text: "A sporting offer. With tragedy in the air, with the ruthless murders in the John Riddell library still unavenged, with Philo Vance about to reveal the hideous truth at last--can you leave this seal unbroken? We make this sporting offer. Return this book with the seal intact--and you are out $2.50. Break it--and the mystery is over. Either way, you lose."
