Fleming, Joan - The Day of the Donkey Derby

London, Collins, 1978. First edition. Doctor Tom Lavenham leads a nice quiet life.  Then his son marries a Chinese girl, a dead body is discovered at a patient's house, and he himself is held at gunpoint, just for good measure!  Fine in near fine dust jacket, the latter showing very light wear to the extremities, yellowing to the rear panel and apparent sticker residue to front flap.  $18.00.
