The Mysterious Bookshop

Allingham, Margery - Sweet Danger

London, Heinemann, 1934. Second printing of the 'cheap' edition. Averna, the small estate that's suddenly become a hot property, has been revealed to be so only after an earthquake. The Fittons are convinced they are the legitimate heirs but an unscrupulous financier wants to discover the secret of the property first! Meanwhile, the Fitton family has a comely daughter Amanda, who caught the eye of our unassuming protagonist, Campion. Could romance be in the offing? Wear to extremities. Spine sunned, binding could be tighter. $15.00.
