The first editions of these works.
Three mystery novels published by the Collins Crime Club, three immensely thrilling novels.
'The Blue Hammer', by Ross Macdonald, the pseudonym of Kenneth Millar. In the original unclipped dustwrapper. This is a Lew Archer novel.

'Payoff', by Hartley Howard, the pseudonym of Leopold Horace Ognall, who also wrote under the name Harry Carmichael. In the original unclipped dustwrapper.
In the original publisher's cloth binding, 'The Blue Hammer' and 'Payoff' in the original unclipped dustwrappers, 'A Gallowbird's Song' in the original price-clipped dustwrapper. Externally, smart. Very minor bumping to the head and tail of the spines. Spots to the top and fore edge, heavier to 'A Gallowbird's Song'. Dustwrappers with minor edgewear and a few light marks, edgewear a little heavier to 'A Gallowbird's Song'. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are bright and clean, though 'A Gallowbird's Song' has a few spots.
