The Mysterious Bookshop

Dean, Spencer - The Merchant Of Murder

Garden City, Doubleday/Crime Club, 1959.  First edition. Wealthy restaurateur Peter Baskoulos' refusal to pay his wife's department store bill is just the first salvo in a mystery case. Soon comes the deluge: A disappearing stock boy, a mysterious blonde woman described as 'dark,' a strange group of fortunetellers, and finally murder.  Price clipped dust jacket shows wear to folds and extremities with chipping to spine ends. $20.00.
