First edition. A Jack Journey novel. J. Journey, who writes on "historical crime and ancient felons," also collects crime books. A few months ago, he paid for a library amassed by a French police inspector, but it hasn't been delivered yet, and now the antiquarian dealer calls to say that it is no longer available, the refund is in the mail. Journey, who wants the books already paid for, decides to visit the dealer for a little confrontation, but when he arrives he finds that someone else has already confronted the dealer...with a sharp implement. So, what was in that collection, anyway? Fine in near fine jacket.
