The Religious Body - Catherine AirdMacDonald & Co., 1966, Hardback in Dust Wrapper.
Condition: Good+ - in Poor DJ. DJ notably soiled, ¾" closed tear to head of upper panel with further small nicks to head and tail. Top edges of text block lightly tanned. Slightly loose, a pleasant rather than exciting copy.
A thoroughly intriguing mystery novel which marks the debut of a stylish newcomer to the genre who combines sound plotting with well developed background atmosphere, and sSense of character, especially as revealed in the sardonic Inspector Sloan and his amiably brash assistant Crosby. Illustrated / decorative end papers.
