Hardcover. First American edition. Light sunning, near fine in very good dustwrapper with a little rubbing and light wear on the spine. Inscribed by screenwriter Mel Dinelli to columnist Louella Parsons. Butler's first novel (first published in England in 1940), a reduced-size wartime book. A scarce, hardboiled mystery, basis for the 1948 film *Kiss the Blood Off My Hands* with Burt Lancaster and Joan Fontaine.
