2 Francis, Dick Odds Against : A Harper Novel of Suspense
New York Harper & Row 1965 First Edition Hard Cover 
[1965]. Very Good in a Very Good dustjacket. Black linen quarterbound in pink cloth. The spine is stamped in black. Octavo. Decorative black and white endpapers. 280pps. Stated First Edition. There is modest rubbing wear and fading at the edges of the cloth, light reading wear, an abrasion at the base of the rear endpapers (due to a slight seepage of the binder's glue), and a previous owner's name is neatly penned on the verso of the ffep. The textblock is otherwise clean; the binding square and tight. The price-clipped, first-state dustjacket, glossy in a new mylar sleeve, is rubbed, has a bit of edgewear with shallow chipping at the spine-ends, and has a crease in the laminate of the rear panel and in the rear flap. The first-state dustjacket has no reviews on the front flap, as called for. The author's fourth mystery, and the introduction of Sid Halley. ".Sid Halley had been one of England's most noted jockeys until the racing fall which crippled one of his hands. No longer able to race, Sid got a job (thanks, perhaps, to his father-in-law's pulling a few strings) at the Radnor Agency, which investigated, for a price, anything from missing persons to criminal cads, and which also had Guard and Divorce departments and a Racing Section. Sid was put to work in the Racing Section, which supplied guards for fancied horses and checked on bookmakers and such matters. He rather liked the work -- until he was, to his amazement, shot in the stomach by a rather timid man. That, plus the fact that Sid still missed his wife, who'd left him, depressed him -- more than depressed him. Then, as his strength returned, his father-in-law, who had remained his friend, involved Sid in a most bizarre project, which became more complex and more dangerous as Sid investigated. Luckily, champion jockeys are tough. Sid needed to be." Purchase with confidence: all books, gradings, and descriptions are rendered the care of a genuine bibliophile.
