Oakland: Hood Trust, 1990. 294p.+263p. in one binding, illustrations and plentiful line maps, very good first edition in original pictorial wraps, previous-ownership signature in ink. Two inter-related tough-guy novels by the Bay Area author, with a curious appended interview with the main character questioning his ties to the Communist Party in the 1920s and 1930s. Manly adventure, crime, several fistfights, some gunplay, characters converse realistically but also tend to declaim on such subjects as railroads and doing business in Central America, on physiognomy, and on palmreading ("chirography" in the text). Writes better than E. Howard Hunt --we mean this as a compliment. (Inventory #: 113458)
