Fleming, Joan - ...To Make an Underworld

New York, Putnam, 1976. First US edition. Robert Cravenhead has left it all behind in retirement to immerse himself in tranquility at his seaside cottage. But his peace and quiet doesn't last long after he finds a strange, waiflike girl locked into the bathroom of his newly renovated house. The suspense really ramps up after the subsequent reports of her rape and murder. One corner bumped and wear to DJ extremities. $10.00.
