A hardcover fictional novel by Edmond Gilligan. It is entitled, The Gaunt Woman. This is a 1943 Edition and has its dust cover. The book's hardcover is tan cloth with embossed dark red printing.

An adventure story of the Grand Banks and the strange warfare that goes on there as fishermen attempt to bring in the catch while German subs meet with their supply ships in harsh weather.
