DuBois, Theodora - Death Sails a High Wind

Garden City, Doubleday/Crime Club, 1945.  First edition. The first cry for help might have been the call of a gull, or a gust of wind whispering through the rigging. The second could be nothing but a man's alarmed shout and revealed Mr. Shand rowing hard to tell his story about the beaten, battered girl he'd found floundering in the mud.  The McNeills knew the girl and were thus galvanized to action. Corners lightly bumped. DJ wear to extremities with chipping to spine ends and tiny open tears. $10.00.
