Chicago: Newsstand Library, 1960. First Edition. Willeford's fifth paperback original novel, bearing the uncommon signature of cover artist Robert Bonfils. Bonfils was one of the most prolific illustrators of mass market paperbacks during the late 1950's-early 1960's, and books signed by him are quite uncommon. Basis for a 1999 film adaptation starring Patrick Warburton. Item #1195
