A collection featuring the wonderfully eccentric (and quite well-to-do) Chase and Delacroix. “Chase and Delacroix’s luxuriant lives are interrupted when Captain Cleveland Baxter, head of the San Francisco Police Department’s detective bureau, calls on them to solve baffling cases. They must unravel the mysteries of a famous Hungarian actor found dead in his dressing room, two tiny puncture wounds in his neck . . . a deep-water explorer who disappears from his diving suit forty feet beneath the surface of Monterey Bay . . . a test pilot who flies an experimental fighter plane into a cloud with a passenger on board and emerges seconds later, alone.” Dick Lupoff is, in no particular order: a fabulous and inventive writer, a heck of a nice guy and a very knowledgeable bibliophile. Our copies of both the hardcover and trade paperback version of this book ship with a special promotional refrigerator magnet. A nifty premium. #38552
