Octavo, cloth. First edition. Superb association copy of Ballard's first book, a hard-boiled novel featuring Bill Lennox. Inscribed presentation copy to Joseph Shaw, editor of BLACK MASK MAGAZINE: "To Joe Shaw who had/ more to do with Lennox's/ development than I did/ Tod Ballard." "SAY YES TO MURDER set the standard for the Hollywood murder mystery. By careful depiction of scene and close emphasis on character, Ballard created a cast of characters which became clichés of the movie industry: the crusty studio head, the long-suffering girlfriend, even cops who are less condescending than usual." - Pederson (ed), St. James Guide to Crime and Mystery Writers (4th edition), pp. 41-43. "SAY YES TO MURDER is a consistently rewarding hard-boiled novel." - Pronzini and Muller, 1001 Midnights, pp. 39-40. A near fine copy in a very good dust jacket with shelf wear along edges, closed tear at lower front spine fold and associated wrinkling at lower left corner of front panel, v-chip from upper rear panel affecting some text. Scarce in jacket. (#126374). N° de réf. du libraire 126374
