THE DOOMSTERS. Ross Macdonald. THE DOOMSTERS.
New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1958. First edition. The seventh book in the Lew Archer series. Many sources believe this book marked a series turning point, when Macdonald abandoned his imitations of Raymond Chandler and Dashiell Hammett and found his own voice. It also marks Archer's turning point as a man more interested in understanding the criminal than in catching him. Slightly cocked but very good with printed, patterned boards still bright and unfaded, but with a few faint foxed spots and a bit of glue bleed through at hinge paper; in a very good dust jacket with minor soiling, a few shallow chips to spine ends and corners, and some old tape backing on verso and a few short tears. SEVENTH BOOK IN THE LEW ARCHER SERIES.
