Kellerman, Faye. JUSTICE: A PETER DECKER/RINA LAZARUS NOVEL. New York City, NY: William Morrow & Company, 1995. Hardcover. First Edition/First Printing. 388 pages. As New/As New.

The author's eighth "Peter Dexter/Rina Lazarus" novel. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. "Chris Whitman, a high-school senior with a hidden past and close ties to his uncle, a powerful Mafia don, has some kinky notions of sexual games. He tries them with his very Catholic and proper classmate, Terry, with whom he is obsessed. Trouble begins when Chris' less constrained former girlfriend is found bound and dead in a tawdry hotel the morning after the prom, with evidence suggesting her involvement in a wild night of drugs and sex with multiple partners, including Chris. The youth's confession, coming after Decker discovers photographs that could compromise Terry's reputation, leaves Decker uncomfortable. So does his chief's suggestion that conflicting forensic evidence be given low priority. Decker, fighting some demons of his own, continues investigating even after the case is considered solved, and Uncle Joey, none too happy with Chris or Terry, executes his own brand of revenge. Surprising twists and engaging subplots will keep readers turning the pages to the satisfying conclusion" (Publishers Weekly). A "must-have" title for Faye Kellerman collectors. This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed in blue pen on the title page by Faye Kellerman. This title has been out-of-print as a hardcover for a very long time and is now collectible. 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 mystery writers. A flawless copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER FAYE KELLERMAN TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 0688046134. $40.00
