She wrote only three mysteries, all set in Alaska, the first mystery writer I believe who used that state for the primary setting. Her detective character is F. Millard Smyth, a "little mild-mannered grocer."

The book is simply red with titles on the spine only. Makes for a boring photo.
|Her third and final book - 1945|
Very nice. Thanks, John!ReplyDelete
Great covers, John!ReplyDelete
Doom in the Midnight Sun sounds for some reason very familiar.
I have Murder Breaks Trail in dj too. I keep thinking what if the title were Murder Breaks Wind, but then I suppose I have a low mind.ReplyDelete
