The Mysterious Bookshop

Fredric Brown - The Dead Ringer

New York, Dutton, 1948. Stated first edition.  Brick red boards with light wear to extremities. DJ spine ends show slight softening as do corners. Previous owner's name to rear pastedown.  Ed Hunter and his uncle Ambrose are traveling with a carnival when a midget is murdered-that no one in the show has ever seen before!  Then, a second murder victim--who wasn't even human!  But it was the third murder that galvanized the two sleuths to action!  Author's second book. 1250.00.
