Description:
New York: Published by Simon and Schuster, 1953., 1953. First edition. First edition. Author's first book. Pages uniformly browned throughout, else a fine copy in dust jacket professionally restored at spine ends,corners, and extremities. Levin's finest book and written as three books in one: part one is told from the vantage point of the murderer, who wants to marry into a wealthy family, but cannot because the girl becomes pregnant and refuses to have an abortion. This will cost him his chance at the family fortune, so in an ingenious manner, which the reader can follow step by step, he murders her and her death is ruled a suicide. In part two the sister of the murdered girl deducts that the apparent suicide was really murder, so she tracks down the killer. She's got the right person, but for the wrong reasons and she becomes the second victim. In part three, a third sister and her husband bring the killer to a sort of justice. An attractive copy of a scarce book. Winner of the Edgar… Read more

Description:
London: Michael Joseph, 1954. 239pp, black cloth. Light shelf wear, tanning to feps, dusting to page edges. Filmed with Sean Young, Christopher Plummer. A Kiss Before Dying is the story of a young student who resolved to marry the daughter of a millionaire for her money and social position. His plans went wrong and had to be changed: and the change involved the carefully planned murder of the girl. The dead girl's sister became suspicious: she learned enough to be an embarrassment : so again the murderer made plans. And then there was the third sister. Ira Levin's novel is first and foremost excellent story-telling; but it offers, too, a most convincing and compelling portrait of a murderer. He is young, appealing and superficially very charming: he has convinced himself that murder is a method, not a crime: his conceit is impenetrable.
