Probably just as rare as the original pb edition is the UK Robert hale edition of 1984, retitled 'One for the Money'. Robert Hale are what we call a library publisher and most of their titles thus are bought by libraries, so few copies of their titles seem to be bought by readers. I have yet to see a copy of 'One for the money' on the likes of ABE (though I may have missed them though my random checking). They actually reprinted most Chaze titles in the 1980s, all of which are probably as hard to come by. Most of Hale's fiction output has been mediocre fiction aimed at libraries who buy in quantity rather than by author. But there have been a few decent items like early Estelmans and Pronzinis.
