Description:
New York: Knopf, 1959., 1959. First edition. First edition. 8vo. Signed by the author. Fine in price-clipped dust jacket with light wear to spine ends, and with two tiny closed tears to top edge of rear panel. Lew Archer is hired by an elderly woman to find her son, Anthony Galton. Anthony disappeared twenty-three years before along with a suspiciously streetwise bride and several thousand dollars of his family's fortune. All Archer's investigation turns up is a headless skeleton, a boy who claims to be Galton's son, and a con game whose stakes are so high that someone is still willing to kill for them. Beautiful copy housed in a black, cloth slipcase with three red leather labels on spine with titles stamped in gold gilt.

Despite this, the pages are neat, complete and legible. There are no other markings or inscriptions within. The book is a touch cocked, but the binding remains tight and it is presented charmingly in cellophane. JK. Our orders are shipped using tracked courier delivery services.
