The Unknown Puppeteer- like new 6 by 9 trade paperback

A killer stalks the wedding party! On the eve of their marriage, Lt. Plate and Daphne must uncover a ruthless murderer or forfeit their chance for happiness for all time. Their fledgling romance began as sparks during a flood, simmered within a scandal, and caught fire amidst a storm of anarchy. Now it would only be justice if Lt. Plate and Daphne could enjoy a long and stress free engagement, then sail away into the sunset after a quiet wedding… Not meant to be. A chance at a dream Hollywood style ceremony pushes up their nuptial calendar, which would be fine if Plate also did not have to tend to security for a runaway princess bride, a Japanese VIP also claiming royal ties, a prominent movie producer staging a murder in Sand Waves, and then the surprise acquittal of an East Texas serial killer who murders on land and sea. With half his fellow officers taking off for sailing trips on Galveston Bay, and the chief busy trying to learn the new computer technology of the 1980s, Plate is left with only Grant Skaar, the youngest member of the force, as backup. Still Plate is coping, and Daphne is selling all parties involved as much insurance as she can, when suddenly everything has to take a backseat to an unimaginable tragedy within the police department. Mystery/thriller featuring the descendant of a famous Texas lawman and the woman he loves, part of as series but also enjoyable as a stand alone mystery

Clouds of Witness- 4 by 7 pocket size paperback.

Another tale of a murder trial gone wrong and a wedding in jeopardy. Rustic old Riddlesdale Lodge was a family retreat filled with country pleasures and the thrill of the hunt- until the game turned up human and quite dead. He was Lord Peter Wimsey''s brother in law to be. The accused was Wimsey's own brother. A few twists of fate- a mysterious vanishing midnight letter from Egypt...a grieving aristocratic fiancee with suitcase in hand... and a bullet destined for one very special Wimsey. The trial of a duke was a first in 20th century Britain and only evidence from America could thwart a tragic miscarriage of justice. A best seller in its era. Great fun mystery reading!

First published in 1927 this is a well worn 87 printing pocket size version of Clouds of Witness by Dorothy Sayers. Cover is in poor condition with back detached completely but very readable, sharp black print on yellowed pages, interior in good shape, spine has some weak spots but for reading purposes this bonus copy will make through a few more read-throughs. Good companion to any digital version. (not included). Condition- acceptable.
