The Mysterious Bookshop

Ambler, Eric - A Kind Of Anger

New York, Atheneum, 1964. First US edition. A prescient sendup of paparazzi driven celebrity culture. When a man is murdered, his mistress disappears. Disgraced journalist Piet Maas stumbles across her in the South of France. The problem is, publishing her story would revive Maas' career but lead directly to Lucia Barnardi's death! Complicating matters is her own extortion scandal--is it worth risking two lives over? Fine in near fine DJ, the latter showing a touch of wear to the extremities. $25.00.
