London, Dennis Dobson, 1951. First edition. A cross between a tribute, an homage, and a parody, a British private eye who behaves like the stereotypical hard-boiled American private eye encounters all the usual stuff--a beautiful, mysterious female spy/victim, a brace of Evil Arabs/Commies/Bureaucrats, and the like. Jolly Good Fun! A very nice copy with top corners bumped and a bit of foxing to the foredge. DJ shows wear and chipping to the extremities and sunning to spine. $35.00.
