Illustrated by Lambert, Saul [cover]

"It was the middle of a sunny May morning when the old man, thin and shabby, made his way up the Heimrichs' driveway...and suddenly collapsed on the gravel. He was Old Tom, self-appointed handyman for the community of Van Brunt, New York, and someone had shot him. The question was, why would anyone care enough about this harmless eccentric, the roving gardener, to want to kill him? Is there more to Old Tom than a look at his unkempt person and ramshackle living quarters would indicate? Why would a murderer choose to shoot him in broad daylight in, of all places, the driveway of Captain Merton Heimrich of the New York State police?"; Ex-Library; 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall

2 Lockridge, Richard Murder Can't Wait (A Captain Heimrich mystery)
Thorndike, Maine Thorndike Press 1990 1560540265 / 9781560540267 Large Print Edition Hardcover Near Fine with no dust jacket 
Illustrated by Murray, James B. [cover]

No jacket as issued. A bright, attractive copy.

"Stuart Fleming, former member of the Dyckman University football squad, is laid up with a broken leg at home when he puts in a call to the Manhattan police. He gives them a story of gamblers trying to get at the current Dyckman players for point-shaving purposes. Lieutenant Nathan Shapiro drives out to the house to question him, only to discover that someone handy with a gun has been there first. The ex-football star is deader than a punctured pigskin. That's when Captain Heimrich gets into the game and finds that football isn't the only sport involved. There's golf, for instance, and philandering - possibly involving a blonde named Enid, or dark-haired Catherine, or red-headed Mrs. Bryce - or maybe all three!"; 7" - 9" Tall
