Dean, S.F.X. - By Frequent Anguish

New York, Walker, 1982. First edition.  Frequent anguish is what Neil Kelly surely feels after the middle-aged English professor's inamorata is murdered.  The fact that she was his goddaughter, his pupil, and a quarter century younger than he adds some sharp edges to the matter, as does the insistence of her parents that Neil find the murderer.  Previous owner's inscription to front endpaper (Signed 'Frank'. The author's true name is Francis Smith, so this might or might not be signed by the author.). Small open tears to DJ extremities. $25.00.
