THE ABILITY TO KILL. True Tales of Bloody Murder.

London: The Bodley Head, 1963.

1st Edition. Hardcover. First Edition, second issue. A fine copy in rasberry-red cloth, gilt titles to the spine in a bright, fresh very good indeed pictorial dustwrapper with some light use. 8vo. 222 pp. A collection of true-crime pieces from the 1950's and 1960's with a classic Ambler take. "Ambler turns his sharp eye on film-writing, the pleasures of Maxim's, and there are lovely semifictional pieces on spies and spy-spotting. His new introduction has its share of graceful nuggets, too. Belongs on every fan's bookshelves". Publisher's Weekly.
