|The Bride of Newgate
NY: Harper & Brothers (1950)
Back panel of DJ has praise for Below Suspicion
According to Cooper and Pike (Detective Fiction, the Collector's Guide) the first edition has tan boards and a variant issue with red boards exists. However, I believe the edition with red boards to be a book club edition. Although the edition with red boards appears to be a Harpers first edition (it looks exactly like a typical Harpers book with the first edition slug present) all of the copies that I have seen are either price-clipped or if they are not price-clipped there is no price present ,,(indicating a book club book).
