About this Item

This is the private detective novel that Michael Dirda, book editor of the Washington Post, called "the best private-eye novel--if you can call it that--of the past 25 years." He later amended that comment to up the total to 40 years. In any case, it's a noir classic, hardly overlooked, but its fame has has not caught up yet with its quality. This is a handsome copy, close to Fine/Fine, binding strong and tight, only a few minor defects -- (especially NO remainder mark) and number line starting with "2," signifying a first printing as Random House configured such things in those long ago days. Overall appearance is unmarked but slightly age-faded, as befits a book published in 1978. The great cover design is intact; two small closed tears at top and bottom. There is a faint dampstain pp 41-44, and the two corners of the front edge are very slightly bumped; rear corners untouched. DJ unchipped and unclipped, with price of $8.95 on front flyleaf. An attractive, collectable copy, SIGNED on the full title page by Crumley. Bookseller Inventory # 121105
