The Mysterious Bookshop

Freeman, R. Austin - Dr. Thorndyke Intervenes

London, Hodder & Stoughton, 1933.  First edition. What would you do if you opened a package to find a man’s head? What would you do if the headless corpse had been swapped for a case of bullion? What would you do if you knew a brutal murderer was out there, somewhere, and waiting for you?  Dr. Thorndyke intervenes. Spine slightly cocked and faded. Light wear to extremities, small bookseller's sticker to rear endpaper. $75.00.


We are devoted to all things mysterious, from hard-boiled hardcovers to pulpy paperbacks, suspected signings and whispers around town.

Located at 58 Warren St in New York City, we are open Monday-Saturday from 11am-7pm. 212.587.1011
