Mitchard, Jacquelyn. THE MOST WANTED. New York City, NY: Viking, 1998. Hardcover. First Edition/First Printing. 407 pages. Fine/Fine. Signed.

The author's second novel. 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. The First Edition is now scarce. Presents Jacquelyn Mitchard's "The Most Wanted". An altogether different novel from her previous bestseller. The writer who was catapulted to immense national renown with her bestselling debut novel, "The Deep End of the Ocean", returns with a bang. "A naive teenage girl in South Texas falls in love with her prison pen pal. The object of her affection is a charming and dangerously handsome young felon who romances her through his letters. After a love affair that defies all conventions, they marry and have a child while the father is still imprisoned. But when he escapes prison to claim his wife and child, what started as a passionate romance turns into a terrifying ordeal of obsession and desire" (Publisher's blurb). An absolute "must-have" title for Jacquelyn Mitchard collectors. This copy is very boldly and beautifully signed in black ink-pen on the title page by Jacquelyn Mitchard. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. This title is a contemporary classic. This is one of few such signed copies of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Please note: Copies available online have serious flaws, are subsequent printings, or are remainder-marked. This is surely an accessible and lovely alternative. A scarce signed copy thus. One of the most brilliant American writers of our time. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER JACQUELYN MITCHARD TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 0670878847. $30.00
