About This Item

New York: Hartney Press, 1935. Hardcover. Fine/Near Fine. First edition. Fine in a lightly worn, near fine and attractive dustwrapper designed by Charles B. Gilbert with a few short tears and some rubbing. The jacket has an unusual design with the tops and bottoms of the flaps extended, folded inward and glued (as issued) to make pockets that hold the jacket on. Very hardboiled private eye novel. The Chicago-born author was a newspaper journalist who wrote a column on rackets and racketeering, and later became a successful screenwriter. Among his produced scripts were *The Great John L., The Angel and the Bad Man, Sands of Iwo Jima, Flying Leathernecks, Hondo, The Alamo*, and *Donovan's Reef*. This particular novel was the basis for the fast-paced and very entertaining 1936 Charles Vidor film *Muss 'em Up*, with Preston Foster as detective "Tip" O'Neil.
