First edition of the author's second book. Hopley writes using the pseudonyms of Cornell Woolrich and William Irish. Near fine copy in dust jacket with light professional restoration to the spine ends and corners. A difficult title. Newly married Prescott Marshall takes his bride and leaves town ... on his wedding day he'd left the bloody body of a blackmailer in his closet.. Marshall embarks on a slow-motion cross-country escape, changing jobs suddenly and dragging his unaware and unhappy wife along as he tries to distance himself from his bloody deed. No matter how far he runs, his guilty conscience is right there, magnifying every knock on the door, every letter, every phone call.
