Bruce, Leo - Death at Hallows End

Chicago, Academy Chicago, 2003. First US edition.  Originally published in 1965, this Carolus Deene adventure finds him tasked with finding a respected solicitor who has disappeared just as he was en route to draft a new will for grumpy millionaire James Grossiter which would disinherit his relatives and manservant in favor of various charities.  Fine in fine dust jacket, with just the slightest softening to the spine ends of the latter.  $22.50.
