Downing, Todd - Vultures In the Sky

Garden City, Doubleday/Crime Club, 1935. First edition.  Reminiscent of Murder On the Orient Express, it's midnight in the Mexican desert, and a train emerges from a tunnel with one less living passenger than it had when it entered!  No one had left the car--which one is the murderer?  Black boards with spooky blue image of a man hiding behind a cactus.  Previous owner's name to front free endpaper along with a blurb which is taped on the page. Spine very slightly cocked, one lower corner bumped.  $45.00.
