[minimal shelfwear, light age-tonin to edges of text block; jacket has some shallow chipping along top edge, minor edgewear along bottom of front panel]. (An Inner Sanctum Mystery) Series Murder mystery (the author's second) with a clever, albeit contrived, set-up: a guy calls a private detective and warns him of an impending murder that will take place that night at the caller's house, which will then be staged to appear as though it was committed by the caller, and confirmed by the subsequent discovery of the caller's corpse accompanied by an incriminating "suicide" note. [NOTE, for what it's worth, that the author's last name is misspelled on the exterior of the jacket -- both front panel and spine!]
