Crown 8vo (18cm). [vi],9-98pp. Original pictorial stapled wrappers - a design by Leroi (Robert Osborne) - a design which has nothing whatsoever to do with the story: it's not American, it's not a thriller, there is no vengeful brunette, and certainly no gun; a poor copy - worn, chipped, creased and soiled. No copy located in any major UK library.
