FIVE SINISTER CHARACTERS, Raymond Chandler, Avon 1st edition

This digest-sized pulp, Number 28 in Avon’s “Murder Mystery Monthly” series, reprints five classic Chandler tales written for Dime Detective: “Trouble Is My Business,” “Red Wind,” “Pearls Are a Nuisance,” “I’ll Be Waiting,” and “The King in Yellow.” This was the first book-length collection of stories from this phase in Chandler’s distinguished career. While a fairly common item, this book is rarely seen in truly high-grade condition. Our copy has tiny, barely noticeable nicks in the spine head and on the first dozen  or so pages but is otherwise Very Fine, with full cover gloss, no color fading, and just lightly yellowed pages. We’ve not seen a better copy. Displays very well.

PRICE INCLUDES SHIPPING AND HANDLING TO DOMESTIC U.S. BUYERS.
