[nice tight copy, light shelfwear to bottom edges; jacket has a tiny chip at the top of the front panel, an even tinier one at the bottom of the rear panel, some rubbing to the rear panel, slight fading to spine]. SIGNED and DATED (February 1948, the month of publication) by the author on the ffep. The screenwriter-almost-director's second novel, in which a labor agitator stirs up political and racial tensions in a small Southwestern town. A jacket blurb by Humphrey Bogart (who appeared that same year in KEY LARGO, written by Brooks) calls it "the most gripping novel I have read in many years," but the New York Times critic begged to differ, opining that the book was "preachy and melodramatic [and] unsatisfactory as a novel, [but] still quite a good scenario." Brooks made the leap from writer to director just two years later with CRISIS, returning just once more to the novelistic trenches, with "The Producer" (1951), before devoting himself exclusively to the cinema.
