I found these great vintage paperbacks at the library sale. They are in good condition. The spines are intact.
Existed between the late 1940s to early 1970s was a publishing phenomenon the time and now a highly collectible genre known as the vintage paperbacks. Sexism, violence and lines like “A hard-boiled ex-cop. A hard-boiled dame. A hard-boiled murder,” were commonplace. Representative titles of this genre are The Brass Cupcake, Desire in the Ozarks and Knee-Deep in Death. They are the perfect quick thrills if I’m not in the mood for thick literature tomes. They are not in the league of 50 Shades of Grey but usually with a good plot and macabre twist. Whether you’re a connoisseur of cops and robbers, an amateur private eye, or just out for a thrill a minute, enjoy. Dive into the gritty underbelly and visit a place and time when you could easily meet a buxom blonde bombshell – but not trust her as far as you could throw her.
