Abbot, Anthony - About the Murder of Geraldine Foster

New York, Covici-Friede, 1930.  Stated second printing.  Yellow boards show some staining.  Spine ends frayed with darkening.  Wear to extremities.  Rear hinge started.  NYPD Commissioner Thatcher Colt is no figurehead, he likes to be in the field solving crimes.  Here, he and his 'secretary' Anthony Abbot (pen name of author Charles Fulton Oursler) seek clues about the disappearance of Geraldine Foster in Depression-era New York City.  $15.00.
