THE FAR CRY. New York: Bantam Books, . Small octavo, cover art by James Avati, pictorial wrappers. First paperback edition. Bantam #1133. Hard-boiled mystery novel. One of Brown's three major suspense novels. "THE FAR CRY, set in New Mexico, has been called Brown's tour de force -- a fair judgment, for the treatment of its theme of a love/hate obsession is uncommon and its denouement is both horrific and surprisingly bleak for its time." - Pronzini and Muller, 1001 Midnights, p. 93. Faint edge creases at front spine fold, small rub spot to front cover, a fine copy, tight and apparently unread. (#127185).
