By Curt Gentry. Gentry, probably best known for co-authoring Helter Skelter with V. Bugs, did win a couple of Edgar awards...but not for this. Relatedly, I have not had good luck with Hoover bios, so if whomever ends up with this doorstop can send me a rec either way, I'd love it.
And a doorstop this is, although it's the paperback edish. Some expected shelfwear and rubbing to the covers, and the spine is cracked, but nothing serious; it's a solid, square reading copy. Lift with your legs, please.
