What Our Customers Say...

Description

First Edition, Original Binding, Publishers' Original Binding, Very Scarce, With Dustwrapper

The first edition.

Scarce work.

Bound in the publisher's cloth with the original, unclipped dust wrapper.

Written by Irish journalist and novelist, John Spain.

This intriguing detective novel surrounds a puzzling missing-persons case, linked to a string of inexplicable murders. Lieutenant Stephen McCord of the Los Angeles Police Department must find the culprit and save the woman he loves, before it's too late.

Condition

Bound in the publisher's cloth with the original, unclipped dust wrapper. Externally, very smart, with light bumping and a little rubbing to the extremities. Light scattered spotting to endpapers and fore edge. Dust wrapper is lightly soiled with edge wear and the odd closed tear. Sunning to the spine of the wrap, with the odd mark. Internally, firmly bound. Pages bright, with light scattered spots.

Very Good Indeed
