First edition. Fine, bright, square copy in price-clipped dust jacket, with minor restoration to spine ends. A Leonidas Witherall mystery. Leonidas Witherall returns home from chaperoning some students on an Egg Day outing to find his house ransacked, his safe open, and a beautiful blonde bound and gagged on his bed .... who later escapes. When a wealthy neighbor asks him to run an unusual errand, Leonidas meets the blonde woman, who hands him a hollow chest. Moments later, he discovers a bludgeoned body in a nearby car. He quickly enlists the help of a motley crew of assistants, and together they track down clues, and solve the mystery.
