Publication: Random House, 1967, New York
First edition. Fine with top-stain bright red, in fine dust jacket. Edgar Award Winner for Best Mystery novel of 1967. Fred Fitch, a New York City resident, is a prime candidate for being an easy mark. Fred's Uncle Matt is murdered by persons unknown, and Uncle Matt leaves Fred, three hundred thousand dollars, as an inheritance. That kind of money left with Fred attracts the wrong kind of attention, as someone now seems determined to kill Fred as well. A clever mystery with just the right balance of suspense and humor.
