Bullets Bite Deep - Hume (David [i.e., John Victor Turner]) - 1932. [1201795]
G.P. Putnam's 1932 - FIRST EDITION, pp. 286, crown 8vo, original brick red cloth, backstrip lettered in black, dustjacket with light chipping to corners and backstrip ends, a couple of chips at foot of front panel, a couple of nicks and a short closed tear to rear panel, very good. An excellent copy of a scarce book, the author's first novel, and the introduction of his most famous detective Mick Cardby - regarded as the first true English take on the American 'hard-boiled' school; indeed, in an instance of narrative reflecting style, the plot concerns the curious presence of various American attributes on a corpse discovered in rural Warwickshire (the author had attended Warwick School). The dustjacket, designed by Pat Keely, is striking and most uncommon.
