The Irrepressible Peccadillo: Special Edition

Multiple File Formats

The wayward beauty who comes back to her old hometown to titillate her ex-boyfriend (now a married lawyer) and to blackmail her ex-husband is ripe bait for murder. And murder is just what she gets. Suspicion falls heaviest on the old flame and not on the discarded husband -- for very obvious reasons. At the time of the lady's demise, the lawyer was out of his legal mind, befuddled by a number of those potent concoctions known around the cocktail table as gimlets. In the second place, he was squarely on the scene of the crime....

Fortunately, his wife believes him. When her husband is carted off to jail, whe sets out to prove him innocent.

"The Irrepressible Peccadillo" is written with all Fletcher Flora's customary verve and sophistication. To the gripping story of a man on the spot, he adds plenty of wit, sex, and humor -- and comes up with a puzzle that will keep the reader guessing to the last page. This special bonus edition includes a classic short story by Fletcher Flora, "The Invisible Gauntlet."

Note: This digital edition includes the PDF, EPUB and MOBI (Kindle) versions of the book.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
