Klavan, Andrew. THE UNCANNY. New York City, NY: Crown Publishers Inc. , 1998. Hardcover. First Edition/First Printing. 343 pages. As New/As New.

The author's "Nathan Conrad" novel. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. "This psychological thriller chronicles the kidnapping of the adored child of a successful psychiatrist in New York City. From the time two men knock at an elderly woman's door and ask permission to conduct a maintenance check until Jessie is reunited with her mother, the pace never slackens. The vulnerability of the honest person to the evil purpose of criminals is made bone-numbingly clear as readers are alternately privy to the inner thoughts and actions of family members, the terrorists, and the police. Literature to spellbind and perhaps nudge readers closer to discarding their youthful sense of immortality" (Barbara Hawkins). The basis of the fine film by Michael Douglas. A "must-have" title for Andrew Klavan collectors. This copy is very boldly and beautifully signed in black marker on the title page by Andrew Klavan. This title has been out-of-print as a hardcover for a very long time. This is one of relatively 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 mystery novelists. A flawless copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER ANDREW KLAVAN TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 0609601121. $30.00
