[nice-looking copy, with just a touch of wear at the extremities; apparently never read, for the binding is fully intact and there is only a partial "reading crease" at the left edge of the front cover, probably from casual opening rather than full-on reading]. Trade PB The first English-language edition of Himes's second Grave Digger Jones and Coffin Ed exploit; originally published the previous year, in French, as "Il pleut des coups durs" (which translates, rather wonderfully, as "It's Raining Hard Knocks").
