Carnac, Carol - The Late Miss Trimming

Garden City, Doubleday/Crime Club, 1957.  First US edition. The Delafield's housekeeper Miss Trimming has died in an accident.  No one is shedding any tears as she was widely despised, but was it really an accident?  One corner slightly bumped, slight touch of wear to top of dust jacket, overall a very nice copy by an increasingly sought after author.  $35.00.
