Jordan doesn't get much of a holiday but he does get the job, after proving his mettle in pursuit of a murderous criminal." the D/J. col. illust. shows a man in top hat, with gloves & cane, leaving the entrance to the Carlton Restaurant, the condition of both book & D/J. is exceptional, back cover & inner flaps listing other titles, on the inside rear flap of the D/J. there are four small pen marks in the form of a letter 'b' or 'p' but other than this & two minute closed tears near the spine the jacket is a fine example of a thirties period cover
