    The Reader's Digest analogy is not valid in that they are not abridged. It's a good way to get copies of hard to find books such as Goodis' Of Missing Persons and the Lionel White you mention.

    Recently I've stumbled across a 1950-1960 hardbound book series from the The Detective Book Club - each volume contains three novels - one volume included a novel by Lionel White (Invitation to Violence), Alan Amos (Fatal Harvest) and Doris Siegel (How Still My Love). The series seems somewhat akin to a reader's digest version of bestselling novels. Can anyone tell me something about this series? Are the novels abridged versions of the published novels?
