Fuga nel sangue [The Mob Says Murder] (Vintage Italian hardcover edition)

SKU: 125727

Conroy, Albert (author)

Milan, Italy: Gialli Giumar 19, 1959. Translation of "The Mob Says Murder." Vintage Italian hardcover in dust jacket, slightly larger than standard paperback. Featured is prolific 50s model & house favorite Shirley Kilpatrick in orange one-piece on the front jacket panel. Kilpatrick is credits as Mara Corday by Peter Gowland on the front jacket flap, although this is incorrect. Corday did appear on another Giumar title the same year, uncredited on the jacket flap. Shirley Kilpatrick still manages to arouse her audience, having had an extensive "men's magazine" career followed by film acting, & turning up in often surprising places (like Italian hardcovers!). The Gialli line is one of Italy's finest mid-century offerings, Italian translations of (mostly) American crime fiction w/ lush full-color pin-ups of the era's most popular models, even Jayne Mansfield, Lili St. Cyr, & June Wilkinson have appeared on the covers, & this particular series was rather short-lived (others ran into print runs of 100+). Very Good in Very Good dust jacket. Jacket tears. Scarce.  [Book ID: 125727]  [Mystery and Crime Fiction (MT)]
