Fletcher, J. S. - The Herapath Property

New York, Knopf, 1921. First edition. Noted property developer Jacob Herapath is found dead in his office, revolver at his side and bullet wound to his head, it seems an open and shut case of suicide.  Ha! Not in a J.S. Fletcher mystery!  Factor in a possibly forged will, a family scandal, and a former secretary who may or may not have sinister motives, and you'll find yourself smack dab in the middle of a topnotch mystery by one of the stalwarts of the Golden Age. Boards worn and slightly stained. Wear to extremities and spine ends. $10.00.
