The Mysterious Bookshop

Canning, Victor - The Melting Man

New York, William Morrow, 1969. First US edition. Rex Carver takes on an unusual job: trying to find a stolen Mercedes-Benz. But why would a multimillionaire hire Carver and spend more to find the car than the car is worth?  The answer, and the case, get a little...messy. Near fine with dust jacket showing light wear to extremities. $15.00.
