New York: Farrar and Rinehart, 1945. First Edition. An exceptionally bright copy of a key Woolrich title normally found the worse for wear. Basis for the 1948 film noir written for the screen by Jonathan Latimer and starring Edward G. Robinson.
Near Fine in an about Near Fine dust jacket without a trace of the usual fading to the spine panel. Light, scattered foxing to the page fore-edges. Jacket has a touch of pinpoint rubbing at the extremities, and two tiny closed tears.
