The Mystery Of Swordfish Reef. by Arthur. Upfield

The Mystery Of Swordfish Reef.

by Arthur. Upfield

First U. K. edition. Originally printed in Australia in 1939, and later in the U. S. in 1943. All printings use the same title. Foxing to the fore-edges and to a few front and rear end pages, else near fine in dust jacket, with very minor wear to the foot of spine. Three men set out from a small Australian seaside town for an ordinary day's fishing ... and simply vanish. There are no clues to their fate, until another fisherman hauls in a gruesome catch ... the head of one of the men, with a bullet hole in its temple. Insp. Napoleon "Bony" Bonaparte investigates.
