I had forgotten about using mapbacks for this month. . I have that book. I also have HAMMETT HOMICIDES , # 223 which has maps for House in Turk Street, Girl with the Silver Eyes, Night Shots and The Main Death. and BLOOD MONEY, # 486. A couple more I have are not of San Francisco.. They all are actually in better shape than some George V Higins' books I bought recently which are from the 70's. Mark
