A fine first edition, in a fine unclipped dust jacket.
The Woolrich ability to stop his readership's pulse has always meant good circulation for his books, and under his pseudonym of William Irish, too. The present collection is made up of 10 mystery novelettes and a number of his short stories. A master of the form and a most versatile creator, this Woolrich treasure chest holds something for every taste -- police method stories; suspense touched with a controlled horror; the psychological stumper, and the action chase/adventure. Pick a face, any face ... all handsome.
