FATAL LADY by Charlotte Armstrong
Two girls lived in that dainty, unobtrusive little cottage
somewhere in Los Angeles - - two lovely, lonely blondes.
Thrown together by chance, each tried to hide from the other
the dark thing that drove her into hiding. Then, suddenly,
the horrid secret of one fell into the hands of the other,
and the grisly gears of murder began to grind.
THE THREE FEARS by Jonathan Stagge
Toxiphobia -- fear of poisoning;
Claustrophobia -- fear of being locked in;
Pyrophobia -- fear of fire.
The divine Daphne Winters, Queen of the Drama, was insanely prey to
all three. In her regal estate along the New England shore, she felt
safe and secure, surrounded by admiurers and devoted maidens aspiring
to her art.
Then one of the ladies slumped across the afternoon tea table, her
sweet young face contorted by poison pangs. Another died, horribly,
in leaping flames. Neighboring psychiatrist Dr. Westlake knew that
murder was afoot, and had a clear suspect. But proving it would be
a different horse!
This is a pre-publication version of the Armstrong novel!
Clean but no gloss. Edge ragging, of course. Lower left corner torn off.
Small piece missing from bottom, otherwise excellent.
