The Devil Thumbs A Ride Robert C. Du Soe Avon 1949 Vintage Paperback Book Pulp Fiction..
Published 1949, Avon Paperback. 154 pages.
Incredible cover art, wild illustration for this Robert C. Du Soe classic. Made into a film noir classic The Devil Thumbs A Ride.

Wow, they don't get too much wilder than this one.
As stated on the front cover : Pick-up Girls On A Ride To Love With Satan Behind The Wheel.

From the back cover:
Love Burns Up The Highway. Whiskey drenched romance roars up Highway 101 by the beautiful Pacific. A lonely traveling salesman lets himself in for a night of wanton amours and breath taking misadventures when he offers a lift to two gorgeous dames from San Diego - and a handsome hombre hell-bent for sin!

Sirens are screaming - all roads are watched - and a hot car suddenly becomes Hell-on-wheels and careens down a side road when you hitch on to this eight cylinder romance... What happens when the chase closes in on the strangest love party ever to take place...

In Excellent Condition. Tight binding, slight cover wear with soft crease mark at the lower corner, all pages firmly attached to the spine, no missing pages, no rips or tears to the pages.

The artwork is in a style of super realistic romanticism, flashy, lurid emotionalism and demonic sleaze all rolled into one that recalls pulp magazine illustrations.
