The Mysterious Bookshop

Coxe, George Harmon - Alias the Dead

New York, Knopf, 1943.  Stated first edition.  An extortionate impersonation goes horribly wrong and the would be fraudster is on the hook---for murder!  Very slight bumping to one corner. DJ shows light wear to extremities with one tiny open tear to top spine.  Previous owner's name to front pastedown. $85.00.
