Art Taylor - The Adventure of the Castle Thief and Other Expeditions and Indiscretions

Signed, Numbered, Clothbound Edition SOLD OUT.

(Also available in a trade paperback edition;
use drop-down menu to choose.)

A man hears a melody in the night and begins a dangerous quest to locate its source. Ghosts of the past haunt the present in hotels, at an office party, and on a date that takes a dark turn. And an elderly woman named Marple sets out to prove she’s every bit as capable as Christie’s own famous sleuth. 

This second short story collection from Edgar Award winner Art Taylor spans the spectrum of crime fiction—from light-hearted traditional mystery to noir-tinged tales and even toward speculative fiction—and features two previously unpublished stories and an introduction by Martin Edwards.
