Murder Wears An Ugly Mask!
Three murders were too many for Ed Hunter. Not even a dazzling redhead from the carnival’s girl show could keep Ed altogether happy – not with a murderer running loose. Then Ed found it was up to him and his Uncle Am to find the killer among the freaks and strippers of the carnival – a killer who chose his victims according to size Ed and his Uncle Am are back, working in a traveling carnival through the Midwest. Bodies, though smallish in stature, keep piling up, and Ed finds himself head over heels in love.
Second Ed & Am Hunter novel, originally published in 1948.
