Cry Wolfram ~ Douglas Sanderson
1959 UK hardback first edition, first impression published by Secker & Warburg in London
A VG+ book in VG price clipped dustwrapper
Clean cloth and text block, light edge tan
The wrapper has small chip to rear panel corner, shallow loss to spine ends and rubs to edges
Fabulous period jacket artwork
Cry Wolfram is full of excitement and its intricacies of plot are skilfully resolved. The characters—the whore who brings shame to her bull-fighter son, the sadistic chief of police, the gypsies with whom Johnny takes refuge —are live human beings far removed from the stock figures of much crime fiction. And scenes such as the Good Friday procession, and the bullfight with which the book ends, are redolent of the Spain which the author knows so well.
A solid copy

The main reason for William Marshall's visit to St. Genebald was to write articles about a famous English actress. He was also hoping that the local peace and quiet would help him to recover from a mild breakdown he had recently suffered in Boston. A body came tumbling down from the tree tops. Was it suicide? Bill thought it was murder and set about persuading people of the fact. He worked so hard at it that he became number one suspect. Everybody doubted his sanity. There were times when he doubted it himself, especially when — The dead woman popped back one night to see him; soft crackling footsteps pursued him through the depth of the wood.
