Item description

Here for your delectation is the SPECTACULAR RARE---------------------LEVINE by Donald Westlake. In the late 50s and early 60s, author Donald E. Westlake, then just getting started, sold four short stories about a mild-mannered police detective named Abe Levine to Alfred Hitchcock's Mystery Magazine. Levine's unique angle was that he was acutely aware of his mortality; he's in the habit of compulsively monitoring his own heartbeat and believes himself to be in danger of a heart attack. His fear of death manifests itself as a deep, pitiless rage against those who take the lives of others, and his adventures typically conclude with him expressing this anger, perhaps in an unexpected comment or, in one particularly dark episode, by driving a 10-year-old sociopath to commit suicide. This volume collects all of the Levine stories, including one that Hitchcock wouldn't publish because it didn't really qualify as a mystery and another written especially for this volume. The last two stories are the best, and Levine's unique take on life maintains a high level of interest. This is the stated Tor First Edition from July 1985. Other than a bit of wear on the c-o-o-l embossed cover, the book is in positively excellent condition. There are no rips, tears, markings, etc.---and the pages and binding are tight (see photo).
