*Crime, Spies & Sleaze: In the late 1950s, the publisher Alexander Moring took over the Hank Janson novels series, with their distinctive red and yellow striped livery. Unfortunately, they did not take with them the covers by Reginald Heade which had adorned earlier Jansons (with a couple of notable exceptions), but the Moring (unknown) cover artists attempted very much to portray covers in the style of Heade, to varying degrees of competence. Readers would have found the same hard-boied thrills as before, however. New in this week, we have seven of these volumes circa 1957: Bewitched, Cactus, Flight From Fear, Sweet Fury, Too Soon To Die, Torrid Temptress and Untamed. Full details as always in our catalogue.
