Light shelfwear to edges and boards. DJ not clipped and covered in mylar. Library discard with usual attachments and marks. Pages tight and clean. 217 pages. It's the summer of 1972, and the General Lemuel Otis Alison (USMC, retired) has set his sights on finishing his history of the Corps and enjoying the somewhat overripe charms of his Australian secretary, Colleen O'Cassidy. Restraining his relish of these pursuits is the presence of his young cousin, Elizabeth Lamb Worthington, at Iwo Jima, his coastal estate. Also distracting are his neighbors, the doddering Mrs. Hackley, her hot-blooded daughter and absent-minded grandson, and the musicians who rent a small house from her, not to mention the body found floating face down on the General's beach.Visit my eCRATER Store for other great books and save on shipping!
