The Mysterious Bookshop

Brand, Christianna - Heads You Lose

New  York, Dodd  Mead, 1942. First edition. The very first adventure of Inspector Cockrill finds him at Pigeonsford Cottage, home of the village squire. A neighbor is found dead in a ditch and it seems clear that a houseguest at the Cottage is to blame.  When the victim's niece is also murdered, Cockrill's investigation heats up, as does the guests' resentment in being treated like common suspects.   Be warned: some anti Semitic talk. Spine slightly cocked, corners lightly bumped. $35.00.
