The Mysterious Bookshop

Drax, Peter - Crime Within Crime

New York, D. Appleton/Century, 1938. First US edition. A truck bearing valuable furs is hijacked, leading to two murders--crime within crime.  A clumsy, bungling series of crimes of the sort that happen with alarming regularity.  London's underworld has never seemed so immediate or so close.  Published in the UK under the title Death By Two Hands. Corners bumped. Small spots to front endpaper and front flap. DJ shows wear with chipping to extremities and spine ends. $65.00.
