Publication: Simon and Schuster, 1940, New York

First edition. Author's scarce second book. Fine, bright copy in a bright, unfaded, price-clipped dust jacket with minor restoration at the spine ends, light wear to the corners and extremities, and a small evidence of an old water stain that appears on the bottom edges on the verso, and not visible on the outside of the jacket. John J. Malone and the Justuses investigate the murder of Paul March, one of Nelle Brown's ex-flames. Nelle Brown was a singer and quite attractive, as well as shrewd and hard to handle. Nelle could be a suspect in the murder of Paul March, but the body was missing. The corpse had stepped out! An exceptional copy of an elusive title.
