Condition: Good to Very Good

To solve a murder in London's East End the Toff must go to Paris and in order to solve the crime, "be furiously gay in the face of death." (Now, there's nothing wrong with going *any*thing or being furiously anything else, but this one was originally published in 1951, and I'm thinkin' that if Creasey were writing it today he might have a.) come up with a different title, and b.) insisted that the blurb writer describe the story a smidgeon differently. Then again, maybe not.) Furiously G-VG w/a bit of slant, light edgewear, tanning, light soil. View more info
