Footner, Hulbert - The Nation's Missing Guest

New York, Harper, 1939. First edition. A sheik arrives in the US with his British bride-to-be as he and his unsavory stepbrother vie for control of the sheikdom. En route to Washington to fulfill his political obligations, the sheik disappears--along with about a million dollars in jewels!  Amos Lee Mappin is called in to investigate. Light wear to extremities. Binding a bit loose in spots. $15.00.
