The author's breakthrough debut novel. One of the most sensational literary debuts of our time. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only. Removable "Signed By The Author" sticker pasted in front. Presents Robert Glinski's "The Friendship of Criminals". "Former criminal defense attorney Robert Glinski's novel explodes off the page with the crackling intensity of Martin Scorsese's 'The Departed'. When a new head of the Italian mob threatens Port Richmond's long-entrenched Polish crime boss Anton Bielakowski, the various criminal factions of Philadelphia don't know who to trust and the promise of war simmers in the underworld. With the help of the FBI monitoring Anton's every move, it's all just a question of who's going to go to jail first, or die. A sensational debut that cannot be missed" (Publisher's blurb). "First-rate urban crime thriller. Maybe a future classic" (Lee Child). An absolute "must-have" title for Robert Glinski collectors. This copy is very boldly and beautifully signed and inscribed in black pen-marker on the title page by the author: "Enjoy! Robert Glinski". There is no recipient named. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. This title will become a thriller-genre classic. As far as we know, this is the only signed copy of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A rare signed copy thus. One of the most remarkable debuts in the thriller genre of our time. A fine copy. . ISBN 1250049962. $40.00
