1 Aird, Catherine A Late Phoenix
New York Bantam Books 1981 0553145177 / 9780553145175 Mass Market Paperback Very Good 


Spine a little creased, slanted, and sunned, slight edge wear and rubbing. Some yellowing but text is clean and unmarked. A nice copy.

"Dangerous moonlight illuminated the English skies the night a German bomb razed the houses in Lamb Lane, Berebury. Then three decades quietly passed before a careless workman's pickaxe struck an old skeleton buried under the wreckage . . . and exhumed a new case of murder for Detective Inspector C. D. Sloan. Time had blacked out the clues. All that remained were a body . . . an unborn baby . . . and a bullet. Could the inspector's uncanny investigative instinct now unearth a killer? Or would this delayed action affair explode and send another victim to moulder in the grave?"; 6" - 7" Tall

Spine, covers slightly creased. Slight shelf wear.

"The townspeople would have said Larking, with its stone rectory and thatched farmhouses, was typical of a thousand other English villages. As it happened, this was true. And everyone in Larking thought they knew everything about everyone else. In that they found they were mistaken. . . especially the morning the postman found Grace Jenkins murdered. She had lived quietly at Boundary Cottage for twenty-one years, but there was a great deal about Grace the townspeople didn't know. And Detective Inspector C. D. Sloan soon discovered they knew ever less about her daughter, Henrietta . . . in fact, nobody could explain who Henrietta really was. "; 6" - 7" Tall

Illustrated by Lehr, Paul (cover)

A little edge wear and darkening, binding fairly tight. Light tanning but text is clean and unmarked. A nice copy.

"'Found drowned, my foot,' said the pathologist two minutes after looking at the body. The unidentified young man pulled from the salt water near the little fishing village of Edsway hadn't drowned after all. And he hadn't been a bather either, observed Detective Inspector C.D. Sloan. One simply didn't go swimming in a shirt and trousers. Not voluntarily, that is. And then there was the matter of the mysterious copper weight stuffed in the dead man's pocket. . . and the sunken ship discovered offshore. It all added up to murder as Inspector Sloan set out in a dinghy to net the killer before he got the chance to send another victim to a watery grave."; 6" - 7" Tall

"The college dons at the University of Calleshire fully expected trouble when the students planned to shake their ivory tower with a sit-in at Almstone Hall. But no one expected the very peculiar theft from a dormitory room. . . or the very dead body in the college quadrangle. For Detective Inspector C. D. Sloan, the ivied halls hid a host of clues. So it was only a matter of time until he uncovered the murderer hidden in the groves of academe . . . but could he do it before death became another victim's alma mater? "; 6" - 7" Tall

Illustrated by Lehr, Paul (cover)

"On the pathologists's cold metal table lay the naked body of Beatrice Gwendoline Wansdyke, spinster . . . Dead of perfectly natural causes at age 59. "The problem," mused the good doctor, "is not so much what she died from as what she died with: a quarter of a million pounds, in a bank account no maiden lady of modest means should have." Detective Inspector C. D. Sloan could feel in his bones it was murder. He had guessed at the motive. He would surely uncover the method. But why couldn't he find out where-oh-where had her little dog gone? And why would looking almost cost him his life?"; 6" - 7" Tall

"Sister Anne," said the Mother Superior unperturbed, "died on Wednesday evening some time after supper, probably in the corridor leading from the Great Hall to the kitchens. Her body was put into the broom cupboard and later thrown down the cellar steps." Who would want to kill a cloistered nun? But, astonishingly, someone had. It was as much of a surprise to the sisters of the Convent of St. Anselm as it was to Inspector C. D. Sloan, Criminal Investigations Department. But now it was up the the Inspector to find the motive and the murderer."; 6" - 7" Tall

"On Sunday the public paid half a crown to view Ornum House's three hundred rooms, its exceptional display of fine china, its authentic Holbein, its dank dungeon complete with suits of armor . . . and a dead body. With Burke's Peerage tucked under one arm and a dictionary under the other, Detective Inspector C. D. Sloan tiptoes through the halls of the aristocracy. His impeccable powers of observation might reveal who murdered the family archivist, but the family ghost walks through these same corridors. So someone else is going to die."; 6" - 7" Tall
