The Mysterious Bookshop

Fenisong, Ruth - Ill Wind

Garden City, Doubleday/Crime Club, 1950. First edition. Wick has everything--he's a millionaire sportsman, owns a private island in the Bahamas, an ex-wife, you name it.  Yes, he has everything except friends. When no one came to his Xmas party, he got determined to have some kind of company, and what company!  A nightclub owner and his wife, two dancing midgets, an aspiring actress--and the ex. Complications ensue.  Pages browned, possible ex-lib with paper residue to front endpaper. Corners slightly bumped. DJ shows slight wear to extremities with chipping and small open tears to the spine ends and some browning. $15.00.
