DON'T COME CRYING TO ME. William Ard.

DON'T COME CRYING TO ME.

New York, Toronto: Rinehart & Company, Inc., [1954]. Octavo, boards. First edition. Crime novel featuring Timothy Dane private eye. The Dane character is a romantic, ..."is a shamus like no other in fiction: young, naive, tender with women, inept at machismo, incapable of escaping tight spots singlehandedly, resorting to violence rarely. There is about Dane a sweetness, a delicate simplicity as incongruous as it is memorable." - Pederson (ed.), St. James Guide to Crime and Mystery Writers, (4th ed.), pp. 22-23. Hubin, p. 28. Some tanning to board edges, very good copy in a good to very good dust jacket with a closed tear to the upper front panel, small tear with rub and crease to lower right front corner, spine shows light wear at ends and some fade, closed tear to lower rear panel. (22480). Item #22480
