Not Comin' Home To You

by Paul Kavanagh

Publication: G P Putnam's Sons, 1974, New York

First edition. Pseudonym of Lawrence Block. Signed as by Lawrence Block on the title page.This very scarce book by Lawrence Block under this pseudonym, is the third and final book with that byline and the scarcest. Fine in dust jacket with light wear to the head of spine without the usual soiling or other signs of wear. This is a story based upon an actual incident and is a powerful suspense and murder shocker. The inspiration for this novel is the killing spree of Charles Starkweather and Caril-Ann Fugate across the Midwest in the late 1950's. The front and rear endpapers provide a map of Nebraska and a trip along Route 80 from Grand Island, North Platte, Ogallala, etc., the primary route taken by the couple.
