The Man Who Killed Fortescue. by John Stephen. Strange

The Man Who Killed Fortescue.

by John Stephen. Strange

Publication: Doubleday, Doran & Company, Inc, 1928, Garden City

First edition. Author's first book and a very early Crime Club mystery title. Fine in a sharp dust jacket very slightly faded at the spine panel. Charles Anstruther, a popular writer of mystery stories, made no answer when the conductor politely said, "End of the line, sir." He couldn't respond because his throat had been neatly cut during the train ride. Detective Ormsberry is asked to take charge of the case, and immediately he has a hunch that somehow this case is connected with the unsolved murder of the year before of millionaire, John Fortescue. An early Crime Club mystery and an exceptional copy.
