About this title


Antique toy dealer and amateur detective Peter Marklin becomes involved in a murder investigation when, at an antique car auction, he opens the trunk of a car and discovers a dead boy inside

From Kirkus Reviews:

While admiring the vintage Packard to be auctioned by Desmond Grangier (``the only man in the world who could make John Gielgud sound dead common''), antique toy-car dealer Peter Marklin (Wind- Up, etc.) opens its trunk--and discovers the body of teenage paperboy Elvis Stover. Grangier, not keen on entrusting his alibi to the police or the press (a furtive homosexual one-nighter with a sailor), asks Marklin for help. Soon, then, Peter, along with his curmudgeonly pal Gus and his love, Arabella (now a TV reporter for a true-crime series), discovers that the hard-working teen may have been blackmailing a former employer, dallying with the sotted wife of another, and may have had information of a porn ring managed by yet another. But who among them not only wanted Elvis dead but Grangier framed for it? With quips and savoir-fair intact, Marklin sorts through an obvious red herring or two and solves the case. Often witty--and though the clues are a tad strained and the Yard's reliance on Marklin a bit implausible, they're wrapped in much English charm. -- Copyright ©1992, Kirkus Associates, LP.

Store Description

The books listed on ABE are not always available in our stores. Please do not call our store locations for these items. With 3 stores less than 1 hour outside the DC/Metropolitan area (1 in Gaithersburg, 1 in Frederick and 1 in Hagerstown, MD), we have the largest selection of books in the tri-state area. Wonder Book and Video has been in business since 1980 and online since 1997. We have over 1 Million books for sale on our website and another 1 Million books for sale in our 3 locations. We have a very active online inventory and as such, we can receive multiple orders for the same item. We fill those orders on a first come first serve basis, but will refund promptly any items that are out of stock. Since 1980 it has always been about the books. ALL kinds of books from 95 cent children's paperbacks to five figure rare and collectibles. A merging of the old and new is where we started, and it is where we are today. Our retail stores have always been places where a reader can rush in looking for a title needed for a term paper that is due the next day, or where bibliophiles can get lost "in the stacks" for as long as they wish. In 2002 USAToday recognized us as "1 of 10 Great Old Bookstores", and we have been featured in numerous other newspaper and TV stories including Washington Post and CSpan. Members ABAA, ILAB.
