Creasey, John - The Toff and the Terrified Taxman

New York, Walker, 1973. First US edition.  Richard Rollison, better known as amateur sleuth the Toff, is at the tax office fighting an overcharge of ten thousand pounds!  But why is the tax inspector so frightened?  And why does he make a flimsy excuse and flee?  Only three things are for sure in this crazy world--death, taxes, and the Toff!  Small stain to front endpaper. Small scraped area to boards indicating tape removal.  Light touch of wear to DJ. Spine very slightly cocked.  $8.50.
