A day in the life at the 21st Precinct, centering on the hard-boiled, moralistic Jim McLeod (Kirk Douglas). 20 pages, saddle stitched, 12 1/4 x 15 inches. Very Good condition. Separation to the hinge fold and a light amount of soiling to the wrappers. Faint horizontal fold crease at the center of the wrapper and pages.
