Description:
New York: Harper & Brothers, [1949]., 1949. First edition. First edition. Author's third hardcover book. Fine in dust jacket with light professional internal restoration to spine ends and corners and some minor light rubbing to front fore-edge. An attractive copy with no loss and the last to be published during his lifetime. Joe Wilmot and his wife Elizabeth own a small movie house. Not being particularly fond of her husband, when Elizabeth catches Joe kissing another woman, she tells him that she is willing to "disappear" if Joe agrees to pay her $25,000. The three decide they will murder a stranger, leave the woman's body in Joe's garage, set the garage on fire, and then, pretending that the dead woman is Elizabeth, collect the $25,000 from the insurance company. This is a tale of fraud, murder, and adultery ... a powerful tale of suspense that leads to a shuddering, disturbing conclusion.

Description:
[New York: Dell Publishing Company, Inc., 1953]., 1953. First edition. First Dell paperback edition. Author's first book originally printed by Harper & Brothers in 1949. The first paperback edition was published by Hillman in 1949. Lightly rubbed at spine ends, else fine in pictorial wrappers with 25 cent price mark. This Dell paperback is difficult to find in fine condition. Joe Wilmot and his wife Elisabeth jointly own and run a profitable smalltown movie house. Their marriage is empty and passionless and made more complicated when Carol Farmer, a business student, comes to live with them. Despite Carol's unattractiveness, Joe has an affair with her. Elisabeth discovers the affair and blackmails the couple to fix an insurance scam in which she supposedly dies (substituting an innocent victim in her place) and nets the lucrative pay-off. Murder, arson, blackmail and suicide combine to make an exciting thriller. A difficult title from an important writer.
