This is a "good plus" vintage paperback with the desirable "map back" design that Dell Books popularized in the Forties, published in 1946.


The binding is solid, not cracked or shook. The reason I have graded this as just "good plus" and not higher, which it would be, is that it is missing the two introductory pages at the beginning which this series of books always had, being: The cast of characters page, and then the title page with the chapters on the verso. Otherwise complete and solid. Text block closes tightly and is square. Much of the glossy coating appears to have come off the covers. No writing or torn pages. One page has a lower corner tip folded over, as is the back free end paper.

Super fun! This is one of Ms. Hughes best known of 14 crime noir novels, and it was made into a film by Robert Montgomery in 1947.
