About This Item

First edition first printing of the third or second novel in the Lieutenant Mayhew series. The front inside summary flap only says that this is the same Lieutenant Mayhew introduced to you in The Cat Saw Murder which is the first novel of the Rachel Murdock series. Then The Clue in the Clay published by Phoenix Press is not mentioned. But some lists show Death Cuts a Silhouette as the second Mayhew novel while others show it as a stand alone. There is a inch long by inch wide chunk missing from the head of the dustjacket's spine. The spine also has light sun fading. Price clipped otherwise in very good / good condition.

About Scene of the Crime Books, IOBA

My wife and I have been operating Scene of the Crime Books since 1996. In 2004 we attempted to go against the market and open a storefront on Oakville Ontario. In August 2006 we closed the brick and mortar and humbly went back to just internet. We now do internet and appointment only through our home. So if you're in our neighborhood let us know 24 hours ahead of time. Thank you. Don Longmuir
