A tight and handsome first edition of the first title in the short-lived "Jimmie Drury Mystery" series -- four titles that concluded in 1941. Fun front jacket art shows Jimmy in shirt and red sweater up close, about to snap a picture of the bad guy whose evil shadow lurks behind Jimmy. A superb copy with a quite nice jacket.
