First U.K. paperback edition, published in Methuen's Sixpennies series. An excellent hardboiled crime novel, featuring the perpetually sloshed detective Bill Crane and his partner O'Rourke, who are attempting to solve the mystery of a kidnapped girl in the Florida Keys. Quite uncommon in this early paperback edition. The book is firmly bound in the original wraps, which are somewhat grubby, rubbed and creased, with minor foxing and a few closed tears. The text block is slightly toned, marked and dog-eared.
