1 Roche, Arthur Somers, and Ethel Pettit Roche Callingham's Girl
New York Dodd, Mead and Company 1937 First Edition Hardcover Good 
(no dust jacket) [moderately worn copy, half of ffep torn away, light dampstain on rear cover, spine turned, front jacket text glued to front pastedown]. Scarce crime novel in which a detective and an orchestra leader team up to solve the murder of a notorious gamber/gangster. "A vivid picture of New York after dark. Gangsters, chorus girls, and society looking for a thrill, move through these pages, adding color and character to a story that races along on a high note of exciting suspense." Touted on the jacket blurb as the author's "latest novel," omitting to mention that he had actually been dead for a couple of years (since February 1935). This didn't seem to put much of a crimp in his output, however, this being the fifth of six novels to appear posthumously -- and the only one to bear his wife's name as co-author, which would seem to imply that the others had already been finished at the time of his demise.
