Facts about

This is a topical pun, referring to Wallis Simpson, the American socialite for whom King Edward VIII had recently abdicated the English throne so they could marry. (He could not wed a twice-divorced foreigner and remain King, so he chose love; they remained married until his death in 1972, 35 years later.)
A Crime Club Mystery. In 1937, Universal had acquired the rights to select 4 books from the publisher of the pulp whodunits' annual output of 52 novels. This was the second one produced in the deal.
