Halo In Brass. by John. Evans

Halo In Brass.

by John. Evans

Publication: W Foulsham & Co, Ltd, 1951, London

First paperback edition. Pocket Book 709. Fourth and last of his excellent Paul Pine novels. Fine, unread copy. Inscribed and signed, "For____ Howard 'John Evans' Browne. This one took seven months to finish! In fact, I gave up on it three times before I could finish it!" In addition to the growing ranks of Howard Browne collectors, Halo In Brass has been much sought by readers and collectors of lesbians, ever since Barbara Grier gave it an impressive A rating in The Lesbian In Literature. Face up across the bed lay the body of a naked woman, a sun-tan stocking twisted tightly around her neck. Detective Paul Pine investigates, taking him from rooming houses to mansions; from a night club to a world of women without men .... and to people who didn't want their secrets spread around! Scarce.
