Rim Of The Pit

0 (0 Votes)
Hake Talbot wrote only two mystery novels and Ramble House is proud to bring both of them back into print for modern readers. RIM OF THE PIT is his masterpiece of an "impossible crime" that takes place in the far north where snow surrounds a group of desperate people, one of whom is bent on murder. The mapback cover from the 1950's Dell paperback is one of the best crime maps ever drawn and we reproduce it here for you. In addition, this book contains a short story by Talbot called "The Other Side". You will not forget this book!
