DeMille, Nelson. UP COUNTRY. New York City, NY: Warner Books, 2001. Softcover. First Edition/First Printing. 140 pages. As New.

The author's eighth novel. The sequel to "The General's Daughter". Uncorrected Proof. The true First Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. "Revives the army career of Chief Warrant Officer Paul Brenner, the cynical, hardworking Criminal Investigation Division man who was forcibly retired after solving the high-profile killing in 'The General's Daughter'. Brenner is called back to investigate the murder of a young army lieutenant by his captain. The catch is, the crime took place during the heat of the Tet Offensive, and the only living witness is a North Vietnamese soldier who described the incident in a 30-year-old letter that has only recently come to light. The trip immediately turns dangerous as he heads up country to search for the letter writer, accompanied by a gorgeous American businesswoman. Intersperses historical facts and chilling political possibilities with enough local color to provide some serious flashbacks for his fellow veterans. The payoff at the end is worth a couple of hundred extra pages" (Barrie Trinkle). A "must-have" title for Nelson DeMille collectors. This presentation copy is very prominently and beautifully signed in blue pen on the title page by the author: "Best wishes, Nelson DeMille". The recipient is named. This is one of few signed copies of the Uncorrected Proof 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 NELSON DEMILLE TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 0446516570. $40.00
