KILLER'S WEDGE. New York: An Inner Sanctum Mystery Published by Simon and Schuster, . Octavo, boards. First edition. The author's first American hardcover book to be published under his Ed McBain pen name and the first hardcover edition of an 87th Precinct novel published in the United States. "KILLER'S WEDGE has enough nail-biting suspense for two novels. It also has an ingenious puzzle, marvelous characters, and wholly satisfying conclusions to both cases." - Pronzini and Muller, 1001 Midnights: The Aficionado's Guide to Mystery and Detective Fiction, pp. 504-5. The usual age-darkening to the text paper, else a fine copy in nearly fine dust jacket with a touch of shelf wear to spine ends and corner tips and some foxing to the inner surface with light show through. (#140514).
