Buchanan, Patrick - A Requiem of Sharks

New York, Dodd, Mead, 1973. First edition with no additional printings listed.  Hired troubleshooters Ben Shock and Charity Tucker are called to a small Mississippi town to investigate sabotage.  When a woman is devoured by a shark, the case hits a whole new level. Predates Benchley's Jaws by a few months. Near fine in near fine DJ, the latter of which shows a faded spine and some chipping to the spine ends. $15.00.
