The Mysterious Bookshop

Lorac, E.C.R. - Speak Justly Of the Dead

Garden City, Doubleday, 1953.  First US edition. Anne Ferens liked her small English village, but loathed 'Sister Monica,' the mysterious warden of the children's home.  But Sister Monica is revered in the village, and when she is found drowned, it turns out to be the most difficult case of Chief Inspector Macdonald's career. Corners bumped, wear to extremities. Endpapers browned. DJ shows light foxing to flaps with open tears to spine & panels. $10.00.


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
