Alverson, Charles: Not Sleeping Just Dead.

Alverson, Charles - Not Sleeping Just Dead. Hamish Hamilton, 1978, 1st. Joe Goodey lives - and nowhere more convincingly than in Charles Alverson's second novel about his seedy, cycnical, yet likeable cop turned private detective. While minding his own business in a San Francisco bar, Goodey is approached by one Frederic Crenshaw, wealthy businessman, to investigate a suspected murder. The victim is Crenshaw's grand-daughter, Katie, who met her violent death while in residence at The Institute, a rehabilitative commune on the coast of Big Sur. The official verdict: accident or suicide. Crenshaw says it's murder and is willing to back his opinion with cash. (Wrapper flap). 8" x 5", 214pp, dark blue cloth, hardback. Very good plus, probably unread, complete with very good wrapper.
