The Caroline Munro Archive: Lay Her Among the Lilies by James Hadley Chase, Corgi Books, 1974

by John Scoleri
Welcome to the latest installment of this semi-regular feature on bare•bones where I share rarities from my Caroline Munro collection.

This week, we celebrate lovely Caroline's 70th Birthday with this long sought-after gem (which actually arrived on her Birthday 1/16). It's another paperback with her photograph on the (in this case wraparound) cover!

Lay Her Among the Lilies by James Hadley Chase was originally published in 1950. In the 1970s, Corgi published a series of Chase's novels with similar trade dress using different models on the covers. This is the only one that I'm aware of in the series with Caroline; if you know of others, please post a comment below!
Regular readers will recall that this isn't the first time I've covered a James Hadley Chase novel with Caroline on the cover. Caroline also graced the hardcover edition of Chase's believe this... you'll believe anything.

Check out the other installments in this series, and keep checking back, as there are a lot more items where these came from!
