Dust jacket by Gavin L. O'Keefe




Jerry Hammond is a world-class yeggman! He once spent a year in a San Do Mar prison and learned everything there is to know about safe-cracking from Capetown Slim, one of the greatest. His skill, and the help of cellmate Laughin’ Sam from Alabam’, are all he has to battle the frame his childhood friend, Tillary Steevens, has laid on him, and at the same time re-win the affections of the woman he calls The Princess, even though she’s married to a disabled man! This masterful webwork novel from the smokin’ typewriter of Harry Stephen Keeler, is even more confounding than it sounds. A minor classic from The Man with the Hunger!
