About This Item

New York: Dell Publishing. Good. 1983. Mass Market Paperback. 0440119766 . Dell Book #11976. Spine slightly slanted, small spots on cover, corners a bit bumped, xx on top edge. Text is starting to yellow, but clean and unmarked.

"It was a most embarrassing way for a policeman's father to die; garbed in gauzy spangled tights and dangling from his own Marquis de Sade strappado machine. It didn't matter that he had broken with the old boy years before. The murder at Harpenden House was sure to make Detective Inspector Perry Trethowan the laughingstock of the CID. So it was sheer torture for Perry to return to his ancestral home to investigate this unconventional crime. But who better than a prodigal son could tell which one of the addled aunts, crackpot cousins, or decidedly sinister siblings had turned the screw that fatal night and made private vice the perfect vehicle for a perversely clever killing."; 6¾" - 7¾" Tall .
