Book Sale Loot 2: Mysteries

I gave up on the camera, but here are our finds from the mystery boxes:

An English Murder, The Wind Blows Death, and Untimely Death by Cyril Hare

R.S.V.P Murder and House of Storm by Mignon Eberhart: these say “first time in paperback,” but I’ve yet to find her in hardcover and many of mine are falling apart. Perhaps someone is hoarding them…

Miss Seeton, by Appointment by Hampton Charles

Ivory Dagger, by Patricia Wentworth

The Mystery Lady, Murder in Writing, Poison Parsley, and The Deathless and the Dead, by Anna Clarke: I’ve never heard of her but they look interesting, and the blurb compares her to Josephine Tey. Has anyone read anything by her?

The Cases of the Cautious Coquette, Howling Dog, and Substitute Face, by Erle Stanley Gardiner: a ton of these are available since he was so prolific, so I limit myself to a few Perry Masons a year.

Foul Matter and The Old Wine Shades by Martha Grimes

The 4:50 from Paddington and The Man in the Brown Suit by Agatha Christie; Giant’s Bread, The Burden, Absent in the Spring, and A Daughter’s A Daughter writing as Mary Westmacott: My mom now owns pretty much every novel she wrote. Which means plenty for me to borrow.

Maigret’s Boyhood Friend, by Georges Simenon

Funeral in Blue, by Anne Perry

Irish Love, by Andrew M. Greeley: Part of the Nuala McGrail series–I’ve read this one but didn’t own it.
