A shrink amateur sleuth solves muders in Central Park.
Clare Casler Saunders (1900-1986) was a Wisconsin-born interior decorator turned mystery writer who lived in New York City, where this mystery is set.
VERY GOOD overall! Scarce title--especially in a decent dj. Cloth is firm and clean, slightly age-toned (as expected with a 1947 date), with an amusing inscription ("To Willie, For being a sucker for Whodonits...") and small pen scribble ffe corner. The dust jacket--not price-clipped--has good color, an interesting design, and is 95% complete with some soil, wear, and peripheral chipping.
