Pyramid R-969 Octagon House GOOD-minus
By Phoebe Atwood Taylor
Cover by Paul Bacon Studio
Welcome to the world of Asey Mayo, living on Cape Cod, known
affectionately as the "Codfish Sherlock!" He's not a detective; he's a
sailor, a mechanic, a jack-of-all-trades, but seems to be constantly
called upon to play the role of homespun sleuth.
A beautiful, bitchy model is knifed. Suspects are everywhere, and the
whole town stands to profit from the tragedy. The victim's sister is
the prime suspect, but there are also a pickled lady blackmailer, a
millionaire's son who crashes planes in town squares, and a dam'fool who
coated a thousand feet of expensive artwork with house paint!
Originally published in 1937. This is first Pyramid printing, 1964.
Somewhat worn and dirty. Pages are browned. Binding is tight and square.
