Carr, John Dickson - The Mad Hatter Mystery

London, Remploy, 1980. The second Gideon Fell tale finds the portly sleuth in a situation fraught with danger! Murder in the Tower of London, and the victim is wearing a stolen hat. Are the hat thief and the murderer one and the same?  Not a locked room mystery of the kind Carr is best known for, but a corking good mystery with an unknown story of Edgar Allan Poe added to the mix. Near fine in near fine DJ, the latter showing light wear to extremities. $35.00.
