The Mysterious Bookshop

Carr, John Dickson - The Problem of the Wire Cage

New York, Harper & Brothers, 1939.  Third printing.  An intriguing variation on the locked room mystery, where the victim is found dead on a tennis court, surrounded by no footprints but his own.  Gideon Fell is on the case!  Lovely copy with only slight browning to endpapers. $20.00.


We are devoted to all things mysterious, from hard-boiled hardcovers to pulpy paperbacks, suspected signings and whispers around town.

Located at 58 Warren St in New York City, we are open Monday-Saturday from 11am-7pm. 212.587.1011
