Death Of A Nurse.

by Ed. Mcbain

Publication: The Armchair Detective Library, 1994, New York

First U.S. hardcover edition. Book actually published in 1955 as a PBO by Fawcett using the title Murder In The Navy and using the pseudonym Richard Marsten. Again in December, 1970, Fawcett revived the title and issued it again using the name of Ed McBain. One of 100 copies that have been numbered and signed by the author and with a new introduction by McBain. As new in decorated cloth without dust jacket as issued and housed in a matching cloth slipcase. A non-87th Precinct novel. "I'll scream, she shouted. You know what happens when a nurse screams rape, don't you?" The man panicked, taking her throat in his hands and squeezing. The woman's eyes bulged, her body shuddered, and then it was over. What a shame!
