1 Porter, Joyce Dover and the Claret Tappers
Woodstock, Vermont Foul Play Press 1992 0881502456 / 9780881502459 Mass Market Paperback Good 

Spine somewhat creased, slanted, corners bumped including some pages, a little edge wear, light reading crease, crease across top corner of front cover leaving the first 30 pages with a small corner crease. Text is clean and unmarked. A nice copy.

Ninth in the Chief Inspector Wilfred Dover series.
"Fans of Scotland Yard's least competent detective take note: here for the first time in paperback in the United States is a surprising departure from the series - and the first to depart is none other than Dover himself. When the doubtful detective suddenly vanishes from Scotland Yard, along comes an ultimatum from a gang of kidnappers, the Claret Tappers. They demand not only a stout ransom, but also the release of two prisoners - a multiple bigamist and a nymphomaniacal shoplifter How Dover gets out of this one is only the beginning. For just as the case is getting cold, the Claret Tappers strike again. And once more Dover is aroused from his stupor in a most unexpected way.'; 6¾" - 7¾" Tall

2 Porter, Joyce Dover One
London Pan Books 1966 Mass Market Paperback Good 

Pan X534, 206 pp. Spine a bit creased, slanted, corners bumped, minor edge wear mostly along spine, a little darkening, front cover has a price sticker from a Danish bookstore. Pages browned but text is clean and unmarked. A nice copy.

"Dover One" is not only the first in the Chief Inspector Wilfred Dover series, it was Joyce Porter's first publshed book.
"Dover is Chief Inspector, moody, lazy, dyspeptic. In company with his Sergeant, a keen boy and a slick dresser, he investigates the disappearance of a sixteen-stone teenage nymphomaniac….The general tone is bawdy, , and Miss Porter shows splendid fertility in comic invention. Where did the body go? The comic-horrific ending must be the best crime fiction joke of the year."; 6¾" - 7¾" Tall
Price: 4.75 USD

3 Porter, Joyce Dover Strikes Again
Woodstock, Vermont Foul Play Press 1991 0881502111 / 9780881502114 Mass Market Paperback Very Good- 

4" Crease across bottom right corner, corners bumped, light reading crease, a little edge wear including a 1" crease at middle of leading edge. Text is bright and unmarked.

Sixth in the Chief Inspector Wilfred Dover series.
"Sully Martin had probably been a picturesque English village before the earthquake nearly destroyed it. And construction tycoon Walter Chantry might have been taken for another of the many casualties if it hadn't come out that he had been strangled. This time Dover is in for much more than his usual share of bother. For a start, the town's only hotel is unlicensed, and there's not a drop of booze to be had. But almost as alarming are the unmistakable signs that someone is actually out to kill Dover. Unless, that is, against all odds Dover strikes again."; 6¾" - 7¾" Tall

Greenwich, Conn Fawcett Crest 1968 Mass Market Paperback Good 

Fawcett Crest d1103, 176 pp. Spine somewhat creased, a bit slanted, corners bumped, some edge wear and a little chipping, some darkening and rubbing, a couple creases to top edge of front cover. Pages slightly browned but text is clean and unmarked.

Second in the series featuring Chief Inspector Wilfred Dove, following "Dover One".
"Detective Inspector Wilfred Dover, faced with the fantastic puzzle of the double murder of a single girl, once again proves himself to be the most original and intriguing sleuth to come along in years. In the macabre chiller, Dover, who is undoubtedly Scotland Yard's strangest detective, adds a new dimension of horror all by himself. If you have read Dover One you will know what we mean. If you haven't, there is a real treat in store for you."; 6¾" - 7¾" Tall

Woodstock, Vermont Foul Play Press 1992 0881502332 / 9780881502336 Mass Market Paperback Very Good 

Spine somewhat creased, slanted, and sunned, corners bumped, slight edge wear, a bit of spotting on leading edge. Text is bright and unmarked. An attractive copy.

Eighth in the Chief Inspector Wilfred Dover series.
"This time, Scotland Yard sends Detective Chief Inspector Dover and his woeful assistant MacGregor off on the Stately Home circuit to look into murder. Since Lord Crouch, master of Beltour, can hardly make ends meet despite the hoards of tourists visiting the manor, his hospitality is meager - though his vegetarian sister, Lady Priscilla, would love to cook for Dover. And the victim couldn't be a drearier sort: 'the wettest thing since nappies,' according to Dover. In short, the inspector can't wait to be quit of the whole thing, and chief suspects begin to pop up everywhere."; 6¾" - 7¾" Tall
