New York: Duell, Sloan and Pearce, (1942).
Hardcover. First edition. Boards slightly soiled, else about fine in a price-clipped, just about fine dustwrapper with a slight tear on the front panel, and a little light overall soiling. A very nice copy of the author's first book, a noir classic that was the basis for the 1947 film *Born to Kill* directed by Robert Wise, and featuring Claire Trevor, Lawrence Tierney, and Walter Slezak.
