About This Item

New York: Dodd, Mead & Company, 1944., 1944. First edition. First edition. 8vo. Author's first book. Fine in fine dust jacket with some minor internal restoration by a professional conservator. A beautiful copy of this scarce wartime book in an equally beautiful dust jacket. When Professor Robert Branch's best friend is found dead, he knows that it can't have been suicide. He is certain that it is murder .... a murder arranged by a Nazi espionage group operating on campus. The only trouble is, no one will believe him. Branch also knows that those same Nazis will have him eliminated as soon as it is convenient. He's even narrowed his choice of executioner down to three ... a psychotic homosexual, a respected educator, and the women he loves! Housed in a cloth clamshell case with a leather label on the spine and titles stamped in gold gilt
