A Master of Destiny: Victor Tremaine

Boston: Chapman & Grimes, 1939. First Edition. Fictionalized (but highly detailed & accurate) account of "Uncle Sam's secret agents in tracking down dealers in marijuana, cocaine, and other debasing drugs." Not in Hanna, presumably because it is a "crime novel," though the content reads more like an occupational novel than a thriller. Not common. Octavo (20cm.); publisher's cloth in decorative dust jacket, red topstain; 255pp. Jacket extremities chipped and a bit worn with old tape repair to verso, faint red pencil "X" across upper panel, manuscript cancel to rear panel, minor paper flaw to front free endpaper, else Near Fine in About Very Good jacket.
