First U. K. edition. Fine, bright copy in dust jacket, lightly soiled on the white rear cover, two tiny closed tears to the top edge of the front cover, and light wear to the spine ends. Lew Archer is hired to investigate a burglary at the mansion of Irene and Larry Chalmers. The prime suspect is their son, Nick, who has a real talent for disappearing. As Archer zeros in on Nick, he discovers a troubled blonde, a stash of wartime letters, and a mysterious hobo. Then a dead body turns up in a car on an empty beach. And then Nick turns up with a Colt 45!
