New York: Simon and Schuster. Very Good+ in Very Good dj. 1948. First Edition. Hardcover. [a bit of wear to ends of spine, light age-toning to pages (less than typically seen in this notoriously-cheaply produced series); jacket a bit worn along top and bottom edges, with a few tiny nicks and tears]. San Francisco crime reporter Dan Banion (featured in two previous novels by this author) joins the hunt for serial killer "Gus the Grue," who has escaped from an asylum for the criminally insane. The author, best known for his journalism under the "Mike Quin" byline, was a Communist Party member who did much reporting on political topics in the Bay Area during the 1930s. .
