1 Smith, Frank A. Cover art by Barbara Walton. CORPSE IN HANDCUFFS.
Macmillan of Canada, Toronto, (1969), Ist Canadian edition. 
176 pp, 8vo (8" H), hard cover in dust jacket. "Why would anyone throw away 100,000 pounds in diamonds? Who were the mysterious couple in the black Fiat? Why did a man end his days as a flaming, human torch? When Catherine Cherwick, daughter of an American diplomat, is spirited away from an exclusive private school on the eve of important East-West trade talks, these are just some of the questions facing Superintendent Pepper of the Special Branch. The superintendent follows a tortuous pa th, leading not only through the underworld of London, but deeper, much deeper into that twilight world of international intrigue and sudden death. It is here that he must match wits with an opponent who is a master in his craft, one who is bent on destroying Pepper and all that he stands for." Previous owner's name and initials on free front endpaper, minor wrinkling at top/bottom of spine. Dust jacket has light edge wear, a few small closed tears, tiny chip at top of front flap-fold, light to moderate rubbing, light soiling on rear panel. VG/G+ 
Price: 25.00 USD
