New York: E P Dutton, 1955. First Edition. Basis for Stanley Kubrick's breakthrough film, The Killing, scripted by Jim Thompson and starred Sterling Hayden in one of his defining roles.
About Near Fine in a Very Good plus dust jacket. Minute wear to bottom edge of the front board; jacket is bright with minute rubbing along the hinges, a couple of tiny closed tears at corners, faint soil to the white rear panel, and faint tape shadows at the flaps (from a previous owner, not a library). Presents very well. [Book #78083]
