LADY AFRAID. Garden City: Published for The Crime Club by Doubleday & Company, Inc., 1946. Octavo, hardcover. First edition. "Dent's later mystery novels are both extensions of his BLACK MASK work and reactions against the kind of fiction he has previously written, and they represent the byproducts of the more sophisticated writing he was applying to Doc Savage. These are novels of intrigue and psychological interaction in which realistic characters and emotions dominate."- St. James Guide to Crime and Mystery Writers, pp. 293-95. A fine copy in fine dust jacket with touch of rubbing to corners and spine ends. An excellent copy. (#81961).
