The Mysterious Bookshop

Carr, John Dickson - The Ghosts' High Noon

New York, Harper & Brothers, 1969.  Stated first edition.  In 1912, reporter Jim Blake is en route to New Orleans, where his editor has sent him to do a story on congressional candidate, also named Blake.  The writer finds more than he bargained for, though, including dirty politics, dark deeds, anonymous letters---and murder!  Spine slightly darkened, light wear to extremities. $10.00.
