About This Item

First edition first printing of the novel that became the movie of the same name starring John Travolta in 1998. SIGNED by John Travolta on the half title page. John Travolta signed the book at the 2019 Fan Expo in Toronto. Originally they limited the signing to 500 ticket which were given out on a draw basis. Once you won you had to pay for your autographs up front. But something changed and at the show and it was opened up to everyone. I will include with the book the email stating I won and my purchase receipt for the autograph. In fine / fine unread condition.

Synopsis

About Scene of the Crime Books, IOBA

My wife and I have been operating Scene of the Crime Books since 1996. In 2004 we attempted to go against the market and open a storefront on Oakville Ontario. In August 2006 we closed the brick and mortar and humbly went back to just internet. We now do internet and appointment only through our home. So if you're in our neighborhood let us know 24 hours ahead of time. Thank you. Don Longmuir
