Description


Mr. and Mrs. North stumble upon a corpse-and fall backward into murder. Jerry and Pamela North's upstairs apartment has been empty as long as they can remember. It's an ordinary Greenwich Village abode, and the Norths are ordinary Villagers-which means they can't bear to go more than a few days between cocktail parties. So when Pamela decides to stage a soiree in the empty apartment, Jerry goes along begrudgingly. But what seems inconvenient becomes felonious the moment they find a dead man in the tub. He has been bludgeoned, stripped naked, and left to rot. The party is most certainly off. Which neighbor was rude enough to leave a body in the upstairs tub? Though they should know better, Mr. and Mrs. North can't resist getting involved. Before they know it, they're right in the thick of a manhunt, and Greenwich Village will never be the same. The Norths Meet Murder is the 1st book in the Mr. and Mrs. North Mysteries, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order. "You'll want to read it. . . . A distinct addition to the annals of modern crime." -The New York Times Praise for the Mr. and Mrs. North Mysteries "Class A." -The Saturday Review of Literature on Murder Out of Turn "One of the funniest and most satisfactory mysteries in this excellent series." -The New Yorker on Payoff for the Banker Frances and Richard Lockridge were some of the most popular names in mystery during the forties and fifties.
