1 Chase, James Hadley BELIEVE THIS...YOU'LL BELIEVE ANYTHING
London: Robert Hale, (1975). 0709147597 / 9780709147596 First edition. Hardcover. Very slight lean, hint of age-toning to the pages and to the endsheets, else a nearly fine copy in black boards stamped to the spine in silver; in a very nearly fine color photo-pictorial dust jacket that shows only a whisper of age-toning. A sweet copy. 
Later entry in the vast oeuvre of the dauntingly prolific, breathlessly suspenseful U.K. king of the hardboiled thriller. Jacket art shows a typically brazen Chase femme fatale, nearly wearing a lacy chemise and giving the old up-from-under look.

3 Chase, James Hadley LAY HER AMONG THE LILIES
