New York, NY, U.S.A.: A Borzoi Book published by Alfred A. Knopf, Inc, 1955. Teal color treated paper on boards. This novel was serialized in the Chicago Tribune. Volume has minor wear. Jacket is worn, torn, chipped and has a piece missing at the spine heel. Now in clear cover. "The picture was a standard circulation booster. Run a shot of any crowd with someone's head white-inked, and if the lucky person saw it and came into the Bulletin office the same day, he'd get a hundred dollars. Ethel Kovalik needed the hundred, but she begged Larry Palmer, who interviewed her not to print her address, she was afraid of the angry man also in the photograph. When Ethel was found strangled in her room, the Bulletin had to find out what happened. Larry Palmer was given the top assignment - one that began with a long-dead scandal and led to a forger who was brave, a blackmailer who was satisfied, a strong-arm man who was frightened and three women, each in her own way involved in murder." . Book Club (BCE/BOMC). Hard Cover. Good/Good. Illus. by Arthur Hawkins, Jr., jacket design.
