A Fred Taylor Mystery, signed by the author on the title page. A cache of old erotic paintings is purchased clandestinely at a benefit seaside auction in Massachusetts. Boston collector Clayton Reed and his agent, Fred Taylor, must provide a cloak of respectability for the auction - and then defend it from the increasingly violent enthusiasm of others who suspect its value only after the sale. Word gets out that this collection may illuminate the dark side of an artist. As this happens, so too is its dubious history, which leads from murder to double-dealing in the margins of the Boston and London art worlds back through time, until a shocking crime of Victorian prudery is laid bare. The ffep has a small spot from a price tag. The jacket has a small curl at the spine top. ; 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall; Signed by Author(s)
