Fairlie, Gerard - Stone Blunts Scissors

Boston, Little Brown, 1929. First US edition.  A Vic Caryll story from the author who carried on the Bulldog Drummond series on the passing of its original author 'Sapper.' Three rich girls have been abducted and Caryll has reason to suspect that the kidnapper is his old friend Derek Sinclair, but after one of the girls escapes (or is released?) that conclusion is called into question. Slight wear to extremities. Part of front flap tipped to pastedown. Name to front free endpaper. Binding not tight. $15.00.
