Former owner's name stamp and address on front pastedown sheet, else a near fine bright copy in dust jacket with small chips to the spine ends, rubbed along spine panel and front flap fold, with tiny nicks and chips to the extremities.

When he vacations at a cabin in Cape Cod, any of his many visitors... an old girlfriend, his fiancee, an outraged husband, a long-lost brother, etc. ... could have killed him, and all of them wanted to. Asey Mayo investigates.
