THE RED SCARF.
New York: Mystery House, [1958] - Octavo, cloth. First edition. Gil Brewer was on the major writers in the Gold Medal line of paperback originals. This hard-boiled novel is one of two books published in hardcover by Brewer, both of which are scarce. "But his most accomplished work is one of two hardcovers, THE RED SCARF -- a tense story of a motel owner caught up in a web of greed, treachery, and violence made all the more complex by his own weakness." - St. James Guide to Crime & Mystery Writers (4th edition), p. 109. Anthony Boucher called THE RED SCARF the "all around best Gil Brewer . a full packed story" (New York Times). Pronzini and Muller, 1001 Midnights, pp. 90-1. Some light black staining to edges of black boards and endpapers from an old style dust jacket protector, light abrasion to front free endpaper, a very good plus to near fine copy in very good dust jacket with light shelf wear to spine ends and corners with a little stress creasing, lower edge of dust jacket shows a little black staining. Still an attractive copy of a scarce book. (#125552) [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
