220 pp, 8 5/8" H. "McGruber is a retired detective with everything a man could want - a home in the Muskoka woods, a charming wife, good health and two grandchildren. But McGruber is restless - and stirred to dream of something more - of palm trees and surf, of yachts and fast cars, of young women with unlined faces and eager bodies. And then, in a flash, (he) realizes it doesn't have to be a dream. It can all be his - but only if he can pull of the Perfect Crime. This is the beginning of a rollicking, non-stop escapade that introduces the hapless McGruber to a world of deception and devious characters - and an insurance investigator who hires (him) to solve his own crime." Minor wrinkling at top/bottom of spine. Dust jacket has minor wrinkling at top/bottom of spine and flsp-folds.
