A near-fine first edition in the original binding. Two of the pages near the middle of the book have very small wrinkles to a small section of the bottom edge. In a near-fine unclipped dust jacket, with a small wrinkle to the top front corner, and some light discoloration to a small strip near the top of the back cover.
Offering indisputable evidence of the early talent that was to lead him to the top of the bestseller lists everywhere, these fourteen tales of crime and corruption, of sleuthing and suspense, of treachery, intrigue, and revenge, by the incomparable John D. MacDonald, were selected from the hundreds that originally appeared in the immensely popular pulp magazines of the late 1940s.
Superb entertainment from one of crime's most famous and accomplished writers.
