London: Clerke and Cockeran, 1951. [Crime fiction] FIRST EDITION. Octavo (20 x 14cm), pp.193;  blank. Publisher's brown cloth with black titles, in pictorial dust-jacket designed by Anderson, originally priced 9/6. Internally fresh and presentable, negligible spotting to front edge. Fragile dust-wrapper shows well; clean and bright, with some inevitable minor wear to corners, neat tears and small chips to spine and edges, a little sunning to spine. Near Fine. Promising tough and fast paced action, the novel follows Nick McDowall, a tough American PI living in London (because he finds it tougher than the States). A real gumshoe thriller, wearing its heart on its sleeve on the characterful noir-ish dust-jacket. Rare in its dust-jacket, this is the only copy available at present. Item #53418
