The Mysterious Bookshop

Creasey, John - Unknown Mission

New York, David McKay, 1972.  First US edition. Originally published 1940, at the beginning of WWII. British Intelligence operatives Murdoch and Dell pose as a honeymoon couple visiting a quaint country hotel. They stumble on spies and thieves, and try to support a plan to align the neutral nations against Hitler.  Spine cocked, corners very slightly bumped.  A touch of wear to DJ. Small stains to author's note and first page of text.  $7.50.
