Footner, Hulbert - The Death of a Celebrity

New York, Harper, 1938.  First edition. Noted playwright Gavin Dordress is throwing a dinner party. Trouble is, most of the guests have a good reason to despise him, and when he turns up dead, it's mystery writer-turned-amateur sleuth Mappin who is convinced it wasn't a suicide, and there's certainly no shortage of suspects!  $12.50.
