243 pp, 8"H. "Brock Potter of the New York brokerage firm of Price, Potter and Petacque again faces a baffling problem. It all begins when a harmless old lady is pushed off a subway platform and killed. She happened to have Brock's name and address in her pocket, and Homicide want to know why. Brock can't tell them: he has never heard of her. But when he begins his own enquiries he finds that she was the chief stockholder of some worthless mining stock called Lucky Devil, and that a man from Salt Lake City had been putting pressure on her to sell to him. Brock and his left-hand man Brian Barth, pay a visit to Salt Lake City, and to the derelict mine, and have some very odd adventures with the very odd collection of people associated with Lucky Devil. But why whould anyone want to control of this worthless stock, and want it badly enough to commit murder (a couple of attempts are made on Brock's life too). No, the answer isn't that the old mine contains uranium. In fact, we defy any reader to come up with the solution before Mr Maling reveals it, for it's totally original. The intriguing brokerage background, the technical data, and the speed of an exciting story combine to make the book outstandingly suspenseful reading." Tiny tear at top of spine, small soft bump at bottom of front board. Dust jacket has minor edge wrinkling, tiny tear at top of spine, tiny chip at bottom of front flap-fold.
