Davis, Dorothy Salisbury - The Clay Hand

New York, Charles Scribner's Sons, 1950. First edition. INSCRIBED by author on title page.  Winston, West Virginia was as quiet as a coal mining town gets.  When crusading reporter Dick Coffee arrives, the locals brace themselves for scandal.  Coffee is found dead at the foot of a cliff--suicide, accident.....or murder?   Spine sunned.  DJ shows wear and chipping to extremities with small tears, open and closed,  to spine ends and small punctures to rear panel.  $35.00.
