The Mysterious Bookshop

Benson, Ben - Broken Shield

New York, M.S.Mill & William Morrow, 1955. Book Club edition. Rookie Ralph Lindsey of the Massachusetts State Police is back in what at first seemed a routine bust--three young hoodlums picked up for theft. But Ralph, the eager beaver, escalates things past the point of no return, and after an unnecessary death which some called murder, he is even shunned by his comrades.  Can he find the truth and redeem himself?  Top corners slightly bumped. Small stains to front endpaper and markings to rear endpaper. Dust jacket shows light wear to rear panel with tape repair, slight staining, and a bit of wrinkling and one small closed tear to front panel. $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
