Dead Ringer, Castles Burning, Hard Trade, At the Hands of Another, Three with a Bullet, Fast Fade, Other People’s Money

By Lyons, Arthur

Published by Mason/Charter, Holt Rinehart and Winston, The Mysterious Press 1977 to 1989 – Sold as a lot, with conditions of the seven books ranging from Very Good to Fine and the jackets are similar. Several books are unread, and Lyons has signed each one, without any inscriptions, on either the half-title or title page. The late Lyons (1946 – 2008) wrote 11 Jacob Astor P. I. novels that were very hard-hitting noir. But the mysteries never caught on, and Lyons is not well-known today as a mystery writer. He did win an Edgar Award for Best Short Story, and Hard Trade was nominated for the Shamus Award in 1987. However, he is well-known as Co-Founder and host (while was alive) of the Palm Springs Film Noir Festival. Additional condition information and more digitals available on request.

The Great Taos Bank Robbery

By Hillerman, Tony

Near Fine, unread book, with slight soiling page edges; in a Near Fine jacket with light edge and corner wear, touch of soiling, tiny closed tear at top of front flap fold, mild sun fade to spine. This copy has been signed by Hillerman on the title page. This is the correct, SECOND state of the book and jacket as verified by the book's designer and illustrator, Dan Stouffer, who worked at the Press. This correct, second state jacket has ONE photograph of Stouffer's drawing of Shiprock on the back panel and book and jacket are significantly different than the correct first states. The states of this book and jacket have been confused by booksellers for many years - see article Two States of Great in May-June 2015 issue of Firsts Magazine, or ask me questions about the issue.
