Why do three different groups want this particular copy of a large-circulation detective story pulp, which it is clearly established has nothing hidden within it, and which carries no codes or secret writing anywhere? The explanation is vintage Keeler, so preposterously convoluted as to very likely stagger many a gentle reader, should such a reader ever happen upon it... a very unlikely event.
There's an introduction which summarizes briefly the contents and highly confusing publication history of Keeler's other circus novels.
This is pretty thin gruel compared to the more typical 400 to 600-page Keeler novels produced (and sometimes published) during his heyday, but in sheer weirdness and in crazed inventiveness, it is right up to the Keeler mark. If you like Keeler, you'll like it.
