The Mysterious Bookshop

Dewey, Thomas B. - The Love-Death Thing

New York, Simon and Schuster, 1969.  First edition.  To the hippie folk, private eye Mac isn't the fuzz, nor is he hip, and he isn't exactly square, either. When he alights in SoCal in search of a runaway girl, he tangles with all manner of peculiar people, a supply of meth, and the inevitable murder.  Fine in Fine DJ with some brown discoloration to boards. $35.00.


We are devoted to all things mysterious, from hard-boiled hardcovers to pulpy paperbacks, suspected signings and whispers around town.
