David Geherin - The American Private Eye

New York, Frederick Ungar, 1985.  Fine in near fine dust jacket which shows very slight wear to extremities and edges.  The two-fisted, hard-boiled detective could be a cardboard caricature in the hands of an inept writer; in the hands (and pen) of the masters discussed in this book, a new archetype, the  most  popular and durable of all American heroes.  $35.00.
