Wobble To Death.

by Peter. Lovesey

Publication: Published by the Bureau of Information, 1917, Salt Lake City

First U. S. edition. Author's first novel. Fine in lightly rubbed, black dust jacket Introduces Insp. Cribb to solve the crimes which take place during a six-day walking race, or "wobbles" as the event was known in the late 19th Century. Great story and a first-class mystery set against a sordid but authentic historical background. This story was re-enacted on PBS Mystery in April, 1980, with Alan Dobie in the role of Sergeant Cribb. An exceptional copy.
