Burns, William J. & Ostrander, Isabel - The Crevice

New York, W.J. Watt, 1915.  Co-author Burns founded his eponymous detective agency and wrote fictionalized accounts of his experiences, in this case, with noted mystery writer Ostrander, credited by some with creating the blind detective archetype.  The wealthiest man in the biggest and most important city has been murdered. Can detective Blaine solve the case, and what does the mysterious visitor the victim had hours before his death have to do with the case?  Lovely copy with pictorial front board and previous owner's inscription to front free endpaper.  $35.00.
