typewriter key?

Hello - thanks if anyone can help.  Am I right in thinking there is a book where the murderer is found because of the pressure he/she puts on a particular typewriter key?

If anyone could let me know if I'm right - and if so what book it is - that would be fab.

thanks so much

    If that were the case and I am not saying it isn't, It would be unfair to tell you as some people might not have read it.

    It could be THE CASINO MURDER CASE, a PHILO VANCE MYSTERY byS. S. VAN DINE, an American detective novelist who lived at the beginning of the 20th Century.
    The text of the novel is available from Project Gutenberg, Australia, here:
  • There was something in The moving Finger about a typewriter? I can't give too much away.
  • There was mention of a fingerprint on a typewriter in The ABC Murders too.
