Copper, Basil: Scratch on the Dark.

Copper, Basil - Scratch on the Dark. Robert Hale. 1967, UK 1st. .38 Special No. 4. Zarah Fayne is missing. When Dr Nathan Crisp asks Mike Faraday to trace his nymphomaniac movie-star wife, the sardonic L. A. Private investigator uncovers a million-dollar Hollywood racket in poronographic films. The trail takes him from Jet Studios to Caibou Lake and, as always, buttlets fly and murder will out. Mike can't make up his mind about Carol Foster, and the lovely Denise Silverman also take his eye. And then there is Starr, the cold professional killer out to get Faraday; there is also Hud Gibson, the sculptor, whose work looks like tortured bicycles. The story moves to a nerve-tingling finale in the imimitable Faraday manner. (Wrapper flap). 7½" x 5", 190pp, black cloth, hardback. Ex-libaray, usual stamps, front-free endpaper removed, front internal hinge weak, 2 or 3 page tears, a number of pages 'pulled' at the foot, good, text complete, reading copy only of scarce edition, complete with good (tear to top-edge into front-flep; edge-wear) wrapper; not price-cut.
