1 Anonymous [Rex Stout] The President Vanishes
New York Farrar & Rinehart (c.1934) First Edition Hardcover Good 
(no dust jacket) [ex-lending library book (although marked as such only by a small label on the front pastedown) with general exterior wear including fraying of cloth at extremities, occasional smudging to pages; binding is intact (hinges are not cracked)]. (B&W photographs) Political thriller about the crisis that ensues in the U.S. Government when the President is apparently kidnapped the evening before Congress intends to declare war -- thus thwarting their plans, since no declaration of war can be valid without his signature. Martial law is declared, and among the groups suspected of snatching the Prez are the Communists, the munitions manufacturers, and a homegrown fascist organization known as the Gray Shirts. Interestingly, a movie version (produced by Walter Wanger for Paramount and directed by William Wellman) made its appearance barely a month after the publication of the book; the New York Times described it as "a racy and biting melodrama [that is] enthusiastically on the side of Mr. Roosevelt's administration."
