First Edition (in dustjacket with 'popular priced editions 75 cents' plug at top front panel). Alluring Peter Driben dustjacket art. Fabulous hospital themed romance and mystery of sorts in which an interne falls in love with a woman accused of murder by poisoning. "Interwoven through the principal plot are no end of interesting incidents of the hospital interne: a Cesarean section birth, the nurse who visited his quarters at midnight, the hospital suicide of a young mother, the anatomic secret of Anne's hold over men, the fugitive from justice in the engine room, the husband who had an affair with his daughter in law, the taxicab baby, the fight in the operating room, the deadly lipstick; the patient in the men's ward who wore a red corset". Very scarce. Good copy, soiling to cloth, rather heavily at spine, small label at spine, Maine library bookplate at front pastedown, stamp at title page, in Very Good dustjacket.
