Crais, Robert. INDIGO SLAM: AN ELVIS COLE NOVEL. New York City, NY: Hyperion Books, 1997. Hardcover. First Edition/First Printing. 288 pages. Fine/Fine.

The author's seventh novel. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. "Three years ago, a Seattle family ran for their lives in a hail of bullets. Hired by three kids to find their missing father, Elvis now must pick up the cold pieces of a drama that began that night. What he finds is a sordid tale of high crimes and illicit drugs. As clues to a man's secret life emerge from the shadows, Elvis knows he's not just up against ruthless mobsters and some very angry Feds. He's facing a storm of desperation and conspiracy bearing down on three children whose only crime was their survival" (Publisher's blurb). His previous career as the screenwriter for the long-running television series, "Hill Street Blues" and "L. A. Law", has served Robert Crais well in his second career as a serious mystery/thriller writer. Regarded by his admirers as his finest achievement thus far. A "must-have" title for Robert Crais collectors. This copy is prominently and beautifully signed in black fountain pen on the title page by Robert Crais. This title has been out-of-print as a hardcover for a long time even though it went into subsequent printing. This is one of few signed copies of the First Hardcover Edition still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a beauty. A scarce signed copy thus. One of the finest living American novelists. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER ROBERT CRAIS TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 0786862610. $30.00
