(no dust jacket) [solid copy with moderate overall wear, some fading to spine cloth; ffep torn out, which has left the front hinge exposed but not separated]. Irish/Woolrich classic, which starts out with both a great dedication ("To Apartment 605, Hotel M----- / in unmitigated thankfulness (at not being in it any more") and a terrific first chapter title ("The Hundred and Fiftieth Day Before the Execution"). A terrific yarn, and the basis for the highly-regarded 1944 movie of the same name, directed by Robert Siodmak and produced by Joan Harrison, who cut her teeth as an assistant/screenwriter to Alfred Hitchcock, and subsequently returned to his fold as producer of his 1955-1965 TV series ( for which she continued to mine the rich vein of Woolrich story material).
