This is the 1938 paperback reprint of Rogues' Holiday by Maxwell March, a.k.a. Margery Allingham, and published in the distinctive Collins Mystery series (White Circle books) with the familiar Policeman in helmet blowing a whistle in the bottom right corner of the front cover

Storyline: Mr Ingleton-Gray, a young man about town, had committed the appalling breach of good taste of dying in a bedroom of the Senior Bluffs Club - of dying, moreover, in circumstances that were distinctly mysterious. Naturally, Colonel Bloom, the resident secretary, was furious. The Senior Bluffs had such a very high reputation. So the police were reluctantly informed. Inspector David Blest succeeded eventually in solving a very odd mystery, in which murder, a beautiful villainess, and a fortune of £200,000 were intricately connected
