The Real Cool Killers.


Other works by CHESTER HIMES

Publication: New York: Avon Publishers, Inc, 1959,

First edition. PBO. Avon T-328. Fine in pictorial wrappers. Originally published in France as Il Pleut des Coups dur and later as a PBO in the U.S. using the title The Real Cool Killers. A white man is shot dead on the streets of Harlem. Plenty of people had motives for killing the big Greek, who had too much money and a fondness for young black girls. But there are complications and Coffin Ed Johnson and Grave Digger Jones, two tough Harlem cops, get things moving in the right direction quickly. Recommended.
