1 Biggers, Earl Derr Charlie Chan Carries On
New York Pocket Books 1943 Mass Market Paperback Very Good 


Pocket Books nr. 207, 275 pp. Stiff covers, minor edge wear, some soiling and a little creasing to covers. Interior clean and unmarked, as typical for war-time Pocket books. A nice copy.

"When the Lofton Round the World Tour arrives in London, it is immediately obvious that someone is trying to whittle down the passenger list. A globe-trotting pleasure cruise is about to become a nightmare of death. In a typical British atmosphere of heavy fog, Hugh Morris Drake, a Detroit automobile tycoon, is found murdered in his bed. This first killing baffles the experts at Scotland Yard, including the renowned Chief Inspector Duff. His counterparts on the French Riviera, in Calcutta, San Remo, and Yokohama are equally unlucky in solving the murders which follow.
"But when the touring party reaches the Hawaiian Islands, the elusive transcontinental killer finally meets his match - Inspector Charlie Chan of the Honolulu Police. When Duff is shot in the back in Chan's own office, the time comes for the master to apply his inimitable methods to the case."; 5" - 6" Tall

"Dan Winterslip was the wandering black sheep of a respectable Boston family. He settled near Honolulu after having made big money abroad -- but no one knows how or where his cash appeared. No one still alive, anyway.
When Dan Winterslip is found on his veranda cot with a knife in his heart, there is no shortage of suspects for the Honolulu police department. There is his brother Amos, who had hated and avoided Dan for over thirty years. There is his nephew John Quincy, just off the boat from Boston, who has failed to dispose of an incriminating sea-chest. And there is a mysterious old shipmate from his seagoing days, recently arrived from points west, who had unpleasant memories to recall.
In his debut, master detective Charlie Chan sifts through a mountain of odd clues to arrive at a bizarre conclusion to a mystery from America's Golden Age of crime fiction."; 6" - 7" Tall
