Woods, Stuart. ORCHID BLUES. New York City, NY: G. P. Putnam's Sons, 2001. Hardcover. First Edition/First Printing. 291 pages. As New/As New.

The author's sequel to "Orchid Beach". The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. "Starts with a bang, a literal one. While Series heroine Holly Barker, a former military police commander-turned-police chief of smalltown Orchid Beach waits at the local courthouse to marry lawyer Jackson Oxenhandler, her fiance gets himself killed in a shoot-out at Orchid Beach's bank. Once past this shocker of an opening, Holly stifles a few sobs, gets back into uniform and sets off to track down the gunmen, a gang of highly organized robbers who planned to heist $4 million in payroll cash. It soon becomes clear that they aren't ordinary robbers, however, appearing to have some connection to a weird little town in a neighboring county, where the average resident is white, male, and a gun nut. Woods deepens his portraits of Holly and her father, Ham, a retired army non-com, and dog lovers should enjoy the antics of Daisy, the Doberman Diva, who is Holly's constant companion. A "must-have" title for Stuart Woods collectors. This copy is prominently and beautifully signed in black pen on the title page by Stuart Woods. This is one of few signed copies of the First Hardcover Edition still available online and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. A very scarce signed copy thus. One of the finest living American mystery novelists. A flawless copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER STUART WOODS TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 0399147772. $40.00
