[solid copy, moderate soiling to page edges, light shelfwear; jacket shows some wear at edges and corners, rear panel soiled but front panel still colorful and attractive]. "A Thriller for Adults," this murder mystery, the author's second novel, is set in a fictionalized Balkan nation, "Corcisco," where a murder is investigated by "Manfred B. Tate, the mild little bulldog of a newspaper correspondent." According to the jacket blurb, much is made of the setting: "Here is a remarkable picture of life in a small Balkan state. Land and people are drawn in sharp, brilliant strokes. Mental aspects are shrewdly, subtly disclosed. The Balkan character has never been so clearly set forth." The journalist-author undoubtedly knew wherefrom he wrote: from 1924 through 1936, assigned to the London bureau of the Chicago Daily News, he roamed all over Europe.
