Blake, Nicholas - The Deadly Joker

London, Collins/Crime Club, 1963. The narrator of this tale and his bride are made uneasy by the constant practical jokes played upon them by the town's mayor, whose half-brother is an unrepentant lecher. Add in violence to a cat, and a murder at a Flower show, and you've got a corker of a mystery! Corners bumped, slight staining to foredge. $15.00.
