One of Stout's Tecumseh Fox mystery series.
"After a disastrous debut in Carnegie Hall, Jan Tusar walked off the concert stage, put down his violin, wrote a note and put a bullet through his head - in front of witnesses. Then Tusar's violin disappeared and detective Tecumseh Fox knew it had to be murder. Fox had all the suspects on hand, but the clues were leading him nowhere . . . until a stolen Chinese vase was returned by parcel post and a Park Avenue playboy was poisoned in the company of eight witnesses!
It was the most damnable and devilish case Fox had ever met, and he was even more determined to solve it when he almost became a corpse!"; 6¾" - 7¾" Tall
