THE FUGITIVE PIGEON. New York: Random House, . Octavo, boards. First edition. "... Westlake's novels under his own name, beginning with THE FUGITIVE PIGEON, had mutated into wildly humorous farces populated by a parade of indolent young men, each wanting only to 'do his own thing' but propelled willy nilly or nilly willy into unlikely danger and intrigues." - Pederson (ed), St. James Guide to Crime and Mystery Writers (4th ed.), p. 1041. Boards a little rubbed at edges, a nearly fine copy in nearly fine dust jacket with some mild rubbing, mainly at edges. (#137115).
