Notes

First edition, first printing, of the author's novel, a mystery which takes its heroine away from her life of luxury and throws her into the dark underworld of Chicago gangs as she sets out to find her long-lost brother. The striking jacket features the film star Louise Brooks, her first cover appearance on a book not related to her work as an actress. Rob Eden was the pseudonym of Robert Ferdinand Burkhardt, a specialist in the pulp genre.
