The Mysterious Bookshop

Freeman, R. Austin - The Singing Bone

New York, A.L. Burt, 1923. Five inverted mystery stories featuring Dr. Thorndyke, in which the solution is laid out, then the reader is tasked with determining how the crime was committed and how the sleuth approached it.  Nice copy with sunned spine, small stain to rear board and binding just a touch loose in spots. $75.00.
