Most of John D MacDonald’s UK printings followed a similar pattern. They would debut in hardcover printed by Robert Hale, which would be followed by one or two or three paperback editions published by Pan. However, five titles (that I have found) were reprinted by Littlehampton under their Magnum imprint. Sometimes they are listed with either the publisher or imprint as Methuen. If anybody can explain this to me, I’m all ears. Anyway, this is one of that series.

I’m not crazy about photo covers, but this series is not bad. Each involves a photograph of a girl (each one decidedly British) surrounded by a revolver and some bullets.

Milk Carton

Have you seen me? I am the French paperback version of You Live Once, titled L’encadré (Framed), printed in 1990 by Gallimard as Carré Noir 541 (ISBN-10 2070435415, ISBN-13 9782070435418).
