Publication: Harper & Brothers Publishers, 1929, New York and London
First edition. Author's only mystery novel. He was better known for his books about dogs, and known as the LAD series. Some minor "pitting" to rear cover of the book, else very good in a fine, bright dust jacket complete with a promotional wraparound band that is also fine.The Harper seal is partially intact at page 250. Set in a long-deserted pirate's house in the Florida Everglades, amateur detective Saul Tevvis must understand the reasons for the many scary events that occur and then find a murderer. An uncommon title that is scarce today.
