Trivia Question

Lady Killer, Ed McBain

In a 1994 introduction to this 1958 story from McBain, he writes: Lady Killer was written in nine days during the summer of 1957. My records show that I was paid the delivery advance on August 2 of that year, so I’m assuming I delivered the book sometime in July. We were renting a house on Martha’s Vineyard that summer, and I wanted to get the book out of the way as soon as possible so I could go flop on the beach. I set myself up in a garage behind the house and worked straight through for nine days, twenty pages a day, which came to 180 manuscript pages. No rewrites. Play it as it lays.
