About This Item

New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1946. Hard Cover. Very Good/Very Good. 12mo. Second printing before publication. Original brown cloth, gilt lettering to spine and blind author's monogram to lower front board. 233 pp. Spine tilted. Rubbing to edges and spine ends, light bumping to spine ends. Dust jacket sunned at spine. Bumping to extremities, some damp staining to spine and front flap, wear to joints, a few small chips, long tear to front joint and a ew short tears, repaired with tape to reverse. A bright, clean copy. Here is Cain at his peak, in a new novel that deals, inevitably, with violent emotions and violent deeds. Here passion and murder are the ingredients of the tale, and what Cain does with them makes this his most terrific adventure in suspense. The hero is a young Confederate spy in Virginia City at the height of its boom period, and it is a story of his infatuation with a camp girl and his fight to possess her.
