The Mysterious Bookshop

Deane, Norman - Silent House

London, Hurst & Blackett, n.d., circa late 1940s. John Sloan has two Uncle Henrys.  One summons him to the other's house, where they find a woman tied to a chair and Uncle Henry number two nowhere in sight. Meanwhile John's inamorata has disappeared pretty much right before his eyes.  And that's just the first three chapters!  Binding could be tighter. Written by John Creasey under one of his many pen names. $10.00.
