Wilson, Ruth & Alexander - The Town is Full of Rumors

NY, Simon & Schuster, 1941.  First edition.  Very good in a very good, price-clipped dust jacket.  Wear to spine ends and bumping to bottom corner.  Small chips at top and bottom of spine and a 1” closed tear at top of rear panel.  The authors’ only published mystery, a puzzling murder that can only be solved by ace reporter Arthur Beele.  $100.00
