First edition, first printing. Publisher's original blue cloth with silver titles to the spine, in the Sol Immerman illustrated dustwrapper. A very good copy, the binding square and firm, the cloth fresh with a couple of light marks to the extremities. The contents, with a previous owner's bookplate to the front free endpaper are otherwise clean throughout. Complete with the rubbed, nicked and creased dustwrapper that is chipped with minor loss to the fold corners and tips of the faded spine. There is a single small piece of tape to the underside. Not price-clipped ($2.50 on the front flap).

This pseudonymous detective novel formed the basis for the 1948 John Farrow directed film noir starring Edward G. Robinson, Gail Russell and John Lund.
