(price-clipped) [bottom of book shelfworn (thin paper covering of boards worn through at numerous points), bottom front corner lightly bumped; jacket edgeworn, some shallow chipping along top edge (no loss of text or graphics), various other small tears, etc. The second (and last) novel published by Woolrich under the "George Hopley" pseudonym, which actually derived from his full name, Cornell George Hopley-Woolrich.
