Brady, Leo - The Edge of Doom

London, Cresset Press, 1950. First UK edition. A tale of a guilty soul, the inexorable chain of events from a natural death to a violent murder and so to the inevitable consequences.  Made into a middling noir film.  Author's first novel. Slight bumping to top corners, a bit of foxing to foredge.  Dust jacket shows wear to corners and chipping to spine ends. $15.00.
