Item #40875 The Whispering Dead [ SOUTH AMERICA MYSTERY ]. Alfred GANACHILLY.

The Whispering Dead [ SOUTH AMERICA MYSTERY ]. New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1920.

First Edition. 'Here is a new twist to the detective story, a story founded, possibly, on actual events which took place in South America a few years before the war. There is a mysterious fire in the German Embassy at Santiago, Chile, among the ruins of which are found the charred remains of a human body. Whose? The identification of this body through the indefatigable efforts of Rojas, the great Chilean detective, and the fastening of the guilt upon the proper person, together with a most exciting chase over the Andes Mountains after the criminal make a story which even the must jaded reader of detective stories is likely to finish at a single sitting'. Very scarce title. Near Fine in Very Good dustjacket, some soiling to rear panels, shallow chips at top spine end and top flap corners.

Price: $225.00
