by William Ard


A Timothy Dane Thriller


With an Introduction by Francis M. Nevins




Ramble House is proud to be the re-publisher of William Ard, one of the best of the noir writers, and one who died all too soon at the age of 37 in 1960. This is the seventh we've published of his novels about crime and justice as they were practiced in the seedy, raw days of post-war America, and in the opinion of Francis M. Nevins, this is Ard's masterpiece. The corruption and brutality that private dick Timothy Dane battles daily has never been more realistically portrayed than in this 1960 novel and Nevins places it all into context in his introduction.
