by Derek. Marlowe

Publication: The Viking Press, 1970, New York

First U.S. edition. Fine in dust jacket. Mallory is a professional assassin who has decided that it's about time for him to retire .... He's getting older and isn't as competent as he once was. With these thoughts on his mind, Mallory returns home to find his wife, Celandine, missing. There is no note, nor is he able to discover any reason for her disappearance in the empty apartment. And then a chance incident links an "assignment" with his wife's disappearance. Mallory's attempts to find her lead him through a labyrinth of mysterious motives, plots, and counterplots.
