New York, Charles Scribner's Sons, 1957. First edition. INSCRIBED by author on title page. Retired Major General Ransom Jarvis is making trouble for a gubernatorial candidate and ends up dead under mysterious circumstances, so much so that the city DA gets involved, along with the general's Scottish housekeeper Mrs. Norris. First in a series of three books featuring the redoubtable lass. Fine in near fine dust jacket, which shows slight wear and chipping to extremities with a tiny closed tear to the top front corner. $45.00.
