Knock And Wait A While.

by William Rawle. Weeks

Publication: Houghton Mifflin Company, 1957, Boston

First edition. Author's first book. The Mystery Writers of America winner of the Edgar Award for the Best First Novel. Fine, bright, tight copy in a price-clipped dust jacket, lightly rubbed and with some light professional restoration to the spine ends and corners. A superb espionage novel set during the Cold War. A U.S. Intelligence Case Officer arrives in Frankfort, Germany on his way to one assignment and is drawn inescapably in another direction into a net of personal involvement, clandestine operations, international cunning and violence that he wants no part of. An exceptional copy.
