This copy of the book is distinguished by bearing the SIGNATURE of underappreciated crime novelist Dorothy B. Hughes on the ffep; no doubt she received this review copy in her capacity as mystery-book reviewer for the Los Angeles Times and other newspapers, a job which she began doing in 1940, and continued for decades after her own writing career had ended.
