A criminal on the loose confesses that he is desperate to be caught. A widowed mother learns the cold truth about her second husband at the dawn of her third marriage. A pencil, the cruelest of the artist's tools, leaves nothing to chance... in To Cut a Long Story Short.This edition of the book is the deluxe, tall rack mass market paperback.
