Notes

First American Edition, First Printing. With the author's signed full page presentation inscription to the actor and screenwriter Louis Sherwin. Sherwin is remembered for his contemptuous comment about Hollywood, "They know only one word of more than one syllable here and that word is 'fillum'". O'Flaherty worked in Hollywood, but The Informer was his first thriller, which proved his greatest popular success. The novel was filmed for the first time in 1929 and again by John Ford in 1935 with Victor MacLaglen in the title role.
