New York, Frederick Stokes, 1938. First edition. Ethel Thomas is an atypical detective. For a start, she's pushing eighty, and richer than anything. Back for a visit to Hidden Harbor, Long Island, a murder and a nor'easter strike at the same time, leaving Ethel free to investigate until the police arrive. Spine very slightly cocked. Tiny piece missing from the spine covering, which is slightly faded. Scarcely noticeable stain to rear board. $27.50.
