DEAD AT THE TAKE-OFF. Lester Dent.

DEAD AT THE TAKE-OFF.

Garden City, New York: Published For The Crime Club by Doubleday & Company, Inc., 1946. Octavo, cloth. First edition. Author's first hardcover mystery, by the prolific writer of most of the Doc Savage pulp stories under the pseudonym Kenneth Robeson. "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 a touch of rubbing to edges. A superior example of this title. (8967). Item #8967
