First edition. Murder Mystery Monthly 42. Pseudonym of Cornwell Woolrich. An old small water stain to the fore-edges of the front and rear covers, else a very good copy in pictorial wrappers. Otto Penzler's Collecting Mystery Fiction #6 says, "The first edition is the only edition; it was published as a digest-sized paperback, identical in format to If I Should Die Before I Wake. Although the copyright page states "Abridged Version," there is in fact no other version." Book contains four short stories, Borrowed Crime, The Cape Triangular, Detective William Brown, and Chance.
