New York: Samuel Curl, 1947.
Hardcover. First edition. A bookplate on the front pastedown else fine in an attractive, very good dustwrapper with two long, internally repaired tears on the rear panel. Vigilantes hang an innocent man, the leader makes amends by adopting the hanged man's son, they become romantic rivals. A very scarce first edition from an obscure publisher (Curl had several partnerships and founded the Mystery House imprint, but published only about two dozen books under this name).
