Author Name    Carr, John Dickson

Title   The Lost Gallows

Publisher    Pocket 436

Seller ID   007982

Originally published in hardcover in 1931 by Harper & Brothers. "It started when El Moulk's automobile roared crazily through a London fog, its driver dead as a herring. The car screeched to a stop in front of that creaky relic of ancient horrors, the Brimstone Club. Through its cavernous rooms and gaslit passages a murderer hunted victims for a private gallows. The calling cards of a notorious hangman, a miniature gibbet, a length of rope, and an inscription from the tomb of Egyptian kings warned El Moulk and his dazzling French mistress that death was on their trail. It was a perfect case for Bencolin, a detective who preferred fantastic murders." Impressions/thin scratches, imperfect binding left fore-edge of first 30+ pages extending slightly forward, small white-out application to top right corner of title page (presumably to obliterate ink price).
