Pyramid X-2132 Proof Of The Pudding GOOD+
Proof Of The Pudding
By Phoebe Atwood Taylor
Cover by F. Kalan
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.
In this entry, originally published in 1945, Asey returns home from
four years of war. He thought theere might be some fuss, but what he got
was definitely no what he expected. He was chased out of his own house.
Th epolice found a girl on the beach with her head bashed in. And half
the town though he had come home to settle an old score!
Second Pyramid printing, 1969. Some dirt on the outside, with light
corner wear. Pages are tan. Binding, except for hinge creases, is tight
