New York: Arcadia House. Near Fine in Near Fine dj. (c.1959). 1st Edition (see note). Hardcover. [nice copy, spine a little turned but virtually no significant shelfwear, the only blemishes being small strips of black residue at bottom of front pastedown and rear fep (remnants of old jacket protector, now removed and replaced); jacket itself is bright and attractive, looks almost brand-new except for some slight fading to narrow strips along the top and the right-hand side of the front panel]. "The thrilling story of a career girl in government service." Mary Casey is a only a secretary in a Midwestern field office of the FBI, but for some reason or another she gets teamed up with a visiting special agent (they "meet cute" via a fender-bender), and together they're assigned to rescue a kidnapped 4-year-old boy. [Edition note: the numeral "5" appears on the copyright page, just beneath the copyright notice; I've found no evidence to indicate that this actually means anything -- but if you think it means it's a 5th printing, and it matters to you that it's not a first, then I suggest you don't buy it.] .
