About This Item

London: Cassell, 1958. First UK Edition. INSCRIBED by the author on the front endpaper: "To Jake Zeithlin / with best wishes / Ken Millar / (Ross Macdonald)."

The seventh book in the Lew Archer series. Generally considered the turning point in Macdonald's writing, where the author eclipsed the influence of Hammett and Chandler and found a distinctive voice as one of the greatest twentieth century authors of hard boiled fiction.

Near Fine in a Near Fine dust jacket. Evidence of discreet touch-up at the spine ends and the front flap fold.
