Book Description

A crafty businessman arrives incognito in a small town, where he takes up residence at a cabin. Using another name he starts buying up property. When he is found dead in his mountain cabin there is no shortage of suspects. Amateur detective Gramps Wiggins has to piece together the clues; a neat copy although the front endpaper may have been removed (so carefully that it is hard to tell), the D/J. is complete with slight edgewear & two closed tears to the spine & has an advertisement for the B.B.C. printed on the rear flap.
