Vandercook, John W.  
Murder in New Guinea: A Case in the Career of Bertram Lynch
 Picture
Publisher: The Macmillan Company , 1959 New York.
Book. Book condition: Good. Good. Hardcover 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall "Therfe was gold in the New Guinea hills, but the island-hopping detecting duo of Bertram Lynch and Robert Deane hadn't come to Papua for all that glitters--they were prospecting for murder. Lynch, an unorthodox British special agent, and Deane, an American professor of history, responded to an urgent summons from the Governor General of Papua, New Guinea. Four experienced explorers had unaccountably vanished in the gold-rich Murray Range. Rumors were spreading through the Stone Age tribes of the New Guinea uplands about mysterious aircraft travelling in and out of the interior. To the governor General, it all pointed to trouble ahead-and trouble was just what Lynch and Deane found when they set off up-country to unravel the mystery. Before they finished, they uncovered a problem replete with international intrigue, deserted native villages, primitive weapons, and a treasure worth more than gold. John W. Vandercook weaves the excitement of today's headlines into a tautly-written, suspenseful tale that will win new admirers for the engaging Messrs. Lynch and Deane." 218 pages. Book is in GOOD condition; slight discoloration to text pages. Dust jacket is in GOOD condition.

Where's Emily? A Fleming Stone Mystery
 Picture
Publisher: A. L. Burt Company Publishers, 1927 New York.
Book. Book condition: Very Good. Good. Hardcover 12mo - over 6 - 7" tall "Every clue leads to a blank wall in this exciting mystery tale. With the promise to her fiance that she would return in a few minutes and join the guests who had assembled to take part in the rehearsal of her wedding, Emily ran out of the house, with the stated intention of going to the hospital and 'kissing the new baby, just for luck.' That was the last anyone saw of her, though the house and grounds were searched high and low. Immediately afterwards Polly Pennington and her husband also left their home, taking the same road across the low-railed bridge that had been flung over a deep ravine that scored the earth close to the house. And no one saw Polly again either, until her body was found huddled at the bottom of the ravine, with six diamonds and a fur belonging to Emily beside it. But Emily was gone and Fleming Stone faced a case without a clue in this, the best detective story that Carolyn Wells has ever written." 318 pages. Book is in VERY GOOD condition; some aging but no significant flaws. Dust jacket is in GOOD condition; price clipped; wear to edges.
