Robert Edward Eckels - Never Trust a Partner

Crippen & Landru, 2021. Subtitled 'The Con Games Of Robert Edward Eckels,' the author published numerous stories in Ellery Queen's Mystery Magazine, most of which concerned confidence games indeed: con men or espionage agents crossing and double crossing one another. These included two popular series, the Lang & Lovell art forgery stories, and those of Major Henry T McDonlevy, all of which are collected here.  The hardcover edition is SOLD OUT.
