First Edition. Dustjacket art after Aaron Douglas. Unusual mystery and detective story. "Wanted: A womanly young woman who has a figure uninfluenced by lamb cops and pineapples. Need not be beautiful but intelligence and refinement must be apparent. No flappers. The advertiser has no hope of getting an answer to this notice... When Steve Bernaberry, the artist who knew women too well, inserted this ad he did not know that a womanly young woman would appear; that she would bring him death; and happiness to his brother Peter, who knew women too little. There is murder in this out of the ordinary mystery; policemen, detectives make and female stalk through it..." Uncommon. Almost Near Fine in Very Good dustjacket, centimeter loss at lower spine end.
