Bagby, George - A Question of Quarry

Garden City, Doubleday/Crime Club, 1981.  Stated first edition.  Near fine in near fine DJ, the latter of which shows the lightest of wear to the extremities.  The most popular character created by George Bagby (pen name of Aaron Marc Stein) was NYPD Inspector Schmidt. Author 'Bagby' acts as a recording sidekick a la Watson and is dismayed to learn there is a contract out on him!  $12.50.
