Eberhart, Mignon - Murder In Waiting

New York, Random House, 1973.  First edition. Occasionally called 'America's Agatha,' Mignon Eberhart returns with another romantic mystery. Her forty-eighth novel opens with the shrill trill of a burglar alarm. Bea gropes through the darkness to find the judge--murdered! So ends her idyllic life, so begins suspicion and secrets.  Spine very slightly cocked. Number (920) inkstamped to front endpaper. Ex-lib with 'discard' inkstamped to title page and card pocket to rear endpaper. Light wear to DJ extremities. $10.00.
