Alexander, David - Murder In Black and White

Private eye Terry Rooke spars with quite the cast of characters, including an ex-prizefighter who was murdered twice, a nonagenarian whose hobby is trash collecting, a three foot midget with a six foot Great Dane, and a talking parrot who squeals on a murderer.  $15.00.
