New York: David McKay Company, (1954).
First edition. Slight spotting and sunning to the boards, very good in a modestly spine-sunned, very good dustwrapper. Second of the author's four mysteries, this one about a man who embezzles from the bank where he works, and sets out across the country. Nicely Inscribed by Gehman to fellow author James Jones: "Jones -- don't get tied up with the girl in Chapter-whatever-it-is. Richard. NY Jan. 1957."
