London: Victor Gollancz, (1944).
First English edition. A small bookseller's label on the front pastedown, bottom corner a little bumped, else fine in a fine, dustwrapper with the slightest of sunning to the spine. Basis for the film Force of Evil featuring John Garfield as a crooked lawyer, a masterpiece considered the darkest, seediest, and most claustrophobic of all film noir. Very scarce.
