Description:
New York: Harper and Brothers, 1957. Hardcover. Fine/Near Fine. First edition. About fine in near fine dustwrapper that is trimmed about .25" shorter than the book. Suspense novel about black private eye Toussaint Moore in dicey circumstances as he investigates in Southern Ohio and Kentucky. The 1958 Edgar Award winner for Best Novel. Ed Lacy was the pseudonym of Leonard S. Zinberg, who was white (but married to a black woman). Some of his work was published as being by a black man. He is credited with creating Moore as "the first credible African-American PI" character in fiction. The first edition is very uncommon.

Description:
New York: Harper & Brothers, 1957. Very Good/Very Good. The 1957 stated 1st edition of this Edgar Award-winning detective novel, purportedly the first work of detective fiction starring an African-American lead private eye, in this case Toussaint Moore. A solid, prefectly serviceable copy. Tight and VG, with light lean at the spine and the removal of a bookplate at the rear endpaper, showing the remnants of glue. And in a crisp, price-intact ($2.95), VG dustjacket, with very light chipping and creasing along the spine ends and the panel edges, light rubbing to the front panel and a bit of soiling at the rear panel. Still though, an appealing copy. Octavo, the stylish jacket design by Boill Hughes. From the front dustjacket flap: "If you're a Negro private eye from up North, you find it tricky sledding in a small Ohio town, close to the Kentucky border."
