About This Item

New York: Prentice Hall, 1987. Near Fine in a Near Fine dustjacket. Gray boards quarterbound in red cloth. The spine is stamped in silver. Quarto. Gray endpapers. [xv] + 332pps., plus 8 pages of photos. There is faint dustspotting to the page-edges, otherwise clean, tight, square, and bright. All tips are sharp. The text is immaculate; no apparent reading wear and no previous ownership markings. The dustjacket, glossy in a mylar sleeve, is mildly rubbed and has touches of crinkling at the extremities; no chips or tears. The original price is intact. Wrapped around the jacket is a band stating 'Personally Autographed Copy.' Generically SIGNED by Joe Franco with 'Thanks' on the half-title page. ".Joe Franco was Jimmy Hoffa's man: loyal, dependable, and willing to bend rules or break heads if it meant advancing the Teamsters union in the name of James R. Hoffa. Franco never questioned an order, he just carried it out. And Jimmy Hoffa never questioned how an order was carried out. In this blistering story of power abused, Richard Hammer documents the rise and fall of Jimmy Hoffa as witnessed by Joe Franco, one of his most trusted lieutenants. There is violence in 'Hoffa's Man'. There is corruption, bribery, extortion, and betrayal. There are names: Bobby Kennedy, Frank Sinatra, and dozens of other political and show business bigwigs enmeshed in this story of greed, immorality, and total defiance of the law. Franco's chilling revelations are at once an appalling comment on the labor movement and a searing indictment of those who found the taste of power even sweeter when laced with blood." Purchase with confidence: all books, gradings, and descriptions are rendered the care of a genuine bibliophile. Satisfaction guaranteed or all costs you've incurred will be refunded. Thanks for your interest in Nooks Of Books. To assist with your decision, photos can be emailed upon request.. SIGNED by the Author. First Edition, First Printing. Hard Cover.

Terms of Sale

Nooks Of Books


Payment Methods Accepted:
We accept Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Discover Card, and checks or money orders made out to Jeffrey C. Wright. You can also, if you like, make your payment -- credit card or bank transfer -- through Paypal.com (Acct name: nooksofbooks@comcast.net).

Grading:
Dealers who are otherwise members of prestigious bookselling organizations should know that you can\'t grade a book Fine if it\'s remaindered; nor can a dustjacket be graded Fine that is price-clipped. And yet we see this sort of thing -- more and more -- and from all manner of establishments. It reflects poorly on the industry.
Thus, we recommend that any prospective online customer insist on a thorough description (such as are issued through these Nooks) for any collectible item. We\'re well-versed, here, in the grading process and we do so fairly if not conservatively.

Refunds:
We understand all too well the hesitancy of some collectors to make their purchases online, particularly in such cases where books are scarce or costly. We, therefore, stress the integrity in these Nooks. Your satisfaction is guaranteed, or all costs you\'ve incurred will be refunded -- no questions asked -- providing the book is returned to us in the same condition within two weeks.

Shipping:
Though most booksellers are quite professional and know how to properly handle their wares, I\'ve noticed (being a book-buyer, too) that many online shops can be slipshod and amateurish in their shipping practices. This being so, we\'d like to assure you: when you buy from us the item will be nicely and securely presented. It will be gift-wrapped, sealed in a plastic bag to protect it against water damage, encased in bubble wrap and/or foam \'peanuts\' and boxed. We ship books out the way we like to receive them. Except, perhaps, in the rare occasion of an inexpensive reading copy, I\'d not think of consigning a book from these Nooks to the hard knocks of the postal system in a simple bubble-mailer. You won\'t get that shoddy handling here.

Insurance:
It is our policy to pay the insurance for any purchase over $200.00. Should you like to provide your own insurance for less of a sum, the cost is $1.30 for $50.00 of coverage, $2.20 for $100.00, and $3.20 for up to $200.00 of coverage. Insurance, in such cases, is suggested (simply state your preference in the comments segment during checkout) as we cannot be responsible for books that are lost in transit.
