So this used to be the woman I had risked my lifestyles to discover. She used to be tough to discover, demanding to get, challenging to kill.

Published April twelfth 1955 by way of DELL, moment printing in 1960 re-titled On the Make


"Depending on one's opinion of A Bullet for Cinderella it was once both John D MacDonald's go back to shape or a run for protection. maybe it used to be either. released in the summertime of 1955, the radical was once MacDonald's fourteenth, his 10th paperback unique and his moment Dell First version. It at the heels of his moment try at a mainstream paintings (Contrary excitement) and it reads just like the paintings of a guy leaping again into the hands of a jilted lover. It's pulpy, violent, attractive, suspenseful or even rueful, a go back to a number of the sorts of characters and occasions that crammed the author's early brief fiction. There's even a buried treasure and a primary individual narrator, the 1st when you consider that useless Low Tide in 1953 ...

Of path, one of many advantages of no longer interpreting MacDonald's novels so as is that you should decide up a booklet like A Bullet for Cinderella and flat out benefit from the hell out of it. Taken for what it's there's completely not anything unsuitable with it. the radical is punctiliously pleasant and a short pleasure to learn. someone searching for a pretty consultant instance of a 1950's hardboiled paperback secret want glance no further."
