New York, Frederick Stokes, 1936. Orange-red boards with striking black titling.  Endpapers browned.  DJ chipped and showing small open tears and two small scrapes to front panel.  Foxing to top edge.  Race Williams is said by some to be the first hard-boiled detective, and in this adventure he battles crooked politicians who are abusing the parole system.  $1500.00.
