The author's eleventh novel. Promotional copy. Promotional material laid-in. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. "While attorney Lucy Chenier is away on business and her ten-year-old son, Ben, is staying with Elvis, Ben disappears without a trace. Amid the maelstrom of personal conflicts, Elvis and his enigmatic partner Joe Pike are forced to consider a troubling lead, one indicating that Ben's disappearance is connected to a terrible, long-held secret from Elvis Cole's past" (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. A "must-have" title for Robert Crais collectors. This copy is prominently and beautifully signed in black marker on the title page by Robert Crais. He signed on top of the page, making his signature stand out even more. This title has been out-of-print as a hardcover for some time even though it went into subsequent printing. This is one of few signed copies of the First Hardcover Edition still available online and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. A scarce signed copy thus. One of the finest living American novelists. A flawless copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER ROBERT CRAIS TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 0385504268. $40.00
