Fletcher, J.S. - In the Mayor's Parlour

London, John Lane the Bodley Head, 1924. Popular edition, first thus. Another treasure trove of well-drawn, interesting characters from Joseph Smith Fletcher, this tale concerns a reform mayor who wishes to clean up the town but is found murdered--in a locked room! As he won by only one vote, there are possible motives aplenty.Spine slightly sunned. Wear to extremities. $10.00.
