Comments

One of Kersh's bleakest novels, telling the story about the hunt for the murderer of a ten year-old child in Soho, carrying the reader through the seamy underbelly of London. Inscribed to American photographer Carl Perutz, a friend and traveling companion of Kersh's who took several well-known portraits of the author. Uncommon signed. Hubin, p.230.
