Gun in Cheek

Publisher: Coward McCann & Geoghegan
Edition: First Edition, Hardcover
Critics agree that this book is a humor classic, a compilation of the worst examples of over-the-top and just plain bad mystery writing over the years. Fred had a good time illustrating this appropriately cliché heroine clearly beset by bad guys of one sort or another.
