(pictorial cloth; no dust jacket) [a solid copy, internally clean but spotted/soiled on top edge, and with dozens of tiny paint specks on the spine cloth]. First book by the novelist/ screenwriter who later had a hand in the screenplays for several classic films noir, including "Laura" and "The Dark Corner"; his own Hollywood novel, "The Pitfall," served as the basis for another. This novel, obviously derived from his own roots, features a multi-ethnic collection of New York types -- Irish, Germans, Italians, etc.
