Run Man Run. by Chester. Himes

Run Man Run.

by Chester. Himes

Publication: G P Putnam's Sons, 1966, New York

First edition. Fine in dust jacket with some minor rubbing to the bottom edge of rear panel, but with no fading to the orange spine lettering. "Walker, one of New York's not very 'finest,' is a perpetually drunk, psychotic detective, vicious with any man unlucky enough to get in his way at the wrong time. Staggering into a restaurant on a freezing day, he kills two Negro workers 'because they were there,' and pursues a third who witnessed the murders, determined to kill him as well." Excellent hard-hitting novel.
