Carr, John Dickson - The Problem of the Wire Cage

New York, Harper & Brothers, 1939.  Third printing.  An intriguing variation on the locked room mystery, where the victim is found dead on a tennis court, surrounded by no footprints but his own.  Gideon Fell is on the case!  Lovely copy with only slight browning to endpapers. $20.00.
