THE FAR CRY. New York: E.P. Dutton & Co., Inc., 1951. Octavo, boards. First edition. 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. A nearly fine copy in very good plus dust jacket with touch of rubbing to edges, small closed tear at upper left front corner, mild rubbing and shelf wear to upper spine end, and clipped price. (#127590).
