1 Shannon, Dell Blood Count
New York William Morrow 1986 0688067794 / 9780688067793 First Edition Hardcover Poor in Good+ dust jacket 

Reading copy. Ex-library with usual markings plus end papers torn out. Corners bumped, slight edge wear. Spine cracked in two spots, pp 87-158 detached as a unit. Jacket in protective wraps taped to boards, with some edge wear and darkening.

"It's been a rainy week in LA, and among the tasks Mendoza and company face are tracing a couple who may have murdered their unwanted newborn infant, and investigating a possible case of husband-beating. There's a string of hit-and-run accidents in which the offending vehicle is a Model A Ford, and the peculiar case of a mugger who's as greedy for his victims' shoes as for their cash. The most puzzling crime of all is the murder of a respectable middle-aged woman from Indianapolis, because no one seems to know why she was in LA or who she was with when she died. Could the killer have been an old college flame? He's the best available candidate, but Mendoza's not so sure."; Ex-Library; 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall
Price: 2.95 USD

2 Shannon, Dell Death of a Busybody
New York, NY Mystery Guild 1988 Book Club (BCE/BOMC) Trade Paperback Very Good+ in Very Good dust jacket 

Corners slightly bumped, very slight edge wear. Jacket shows a little edge wear/darkening, and a small (1/8") hole at bottom front right. A clean, attractive copy.

"Margaret Chadwick seemed to have everything-good looks, more money than she knew what to do with, and a pedigree to rival a princess. Margaret, however, had one serious flaw: she was a chronic do-gooder who insisted on prying too deeply into the lives of the 'unfortunates.' She was such a malicious busybody that hardly a tear was shed when her body was found in the freight yards-neatly strangled and minus a single slue. When Los Angeles Police Department Lieutenant Luis Mendoza takes the case, he's staggered by the havoc the woman has wrought: pitting husbands against wives, children against parents, and strewing seeds of jealousy, suspicion, and hatred wherever she went."; 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall
Price: 5.75 USD

Spine very slightly slanted. DJ shows some bumping/edgewear, two very small tears at bottom edge of spine, and crease on inside flap. A bright, attractive copy.

"Murder by the Tale is the perfect short-story collection for Dell Shannon’s thousands of fans, because it gives them eight never-before-published stories featuring the popular Lieutenant Luis Mendoza of the Los Angeles Police Department as well as six fine non-series tales. We see the full range of Dell Shannon’s diabolical talent as a writer of crime fiction—from the nitty-gritty realism of the Mendoza stories to creepy supernaturalism."; 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall
