New York: Dodd, Mead & Co. 1941. First. hardcover. , 231 pages. Thick 8vo, pink-lettered dark gray cloth with blind-stamped publisher's device to the front panel, top edge red (cloth edges lightly worn and spine gently creased; ownership signature and some paper damage on front & rear endpapers). New York: Dodd, Mead & Co., 1941. First edition. very good.
Despite the noted defects, still overall a very good copy of this scarce Hollywood-based book - a classic hard-boiled crime story which was the basis for the 1941 film noir starring Bette Grable.
