Speaker of Mandarin, by Rendell, Ruth. Pantheon Books: New York, 1983. Edition: First American edition, stated. ISBN: 0394522729. Hardcover, 223 pages. Quarter bound in black cloth over black, paper-covered boards; blue metalic lettering on spine.
Condition: Very Good in a Good Plus jacket. Lightly spine-cocked. Jacket shows rubbing, a small amount of chipping at spine ends, and some wear along margins. There is also a small amount of discoloration (about the size of a pencil eraser) where it appears that a drop of water got on the lower spine and transferred some color to the jacket. There is no other evidence of water damage, and this can only be seen from inside the jacket.
Contents: An Inspector Wexford mystery. Publisher's note:
Chief Inspector Wexford is in China, visiting ancient tombs and palaces with a group of British tourists. After their return to England, one of his fellow tourists is found murdered. As he questions other members of the group, Wexford finds secrets of greed, treachery, theft, and adultery, leading the distressed inspector to ask not who is innocent, but who is least guilty . . .
