Lucas, Norman - Situations Vacant. Herbert Jenkins, 1st, 1956. Title-page label indicating the book was distributed by The Book Club. Monty Lane was a copper's nark ready to peddle items of underworld information to the police whenever it suited him to do so. Knowing his man, Chief-Superintendent Bill Rowlands was more than interested when Monty phoned him at Scotland Yard and suggested a meeting. But Monty failed to show up in the bar of the pub wyhich was their rendezvous. Rowlands waited and stil Monty did not come. It wa not long before Rowlands knew why, Lane has been murdered, presumably by someone acting on the belief that dead men tell no tales. But, dead or not, monty told parrt of his story - not verbally and in detail but indirectly by means of the newspaper cutting found in his pocket. As a clue, the cutting offfered nothing but a point of departure from which to begin investigations, but Rowlands took it gratefully and soon was gathering up isolated threads which one by one proved to have a common base. (Wrapper flap). 7½" x 5", 192pp, red cloth, hardback. Very good complete with good, price cut wrapper that is worn/torn at the head of the spine.
