Dickson, Carter - The Plague Court Murders

New York, Grosset & Dunlap, 1934.  Reprint. The very first mystery featuring Henry Merrivale.  Is Plague Court haunted?  Owner Dean Halliday thinks so and stages a seance to find out.  But the medium is found dead in a locked room, and HM embarks on one of the most baffling, and most celebrated, cases in the annals of mystery fiction. Wear to extremities. Slight staining to boards. Binding just slightly loose at title page. Previous owner's info inkstamped to front endpaper.  $25.00.
