About This Item

Orion Books, London, 1995. First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good/Very Good. Dark gray coloured boards with silver coloured titles to the backstrip. Photographic dustwrapper with black and white coloured titles to the front panel and a backstrip. A Matthew Scudder investigation. For many years 31 men have been meeting annually to record the passage of time and give a toast to the joys of life. All of a sudden, the men started to die at an alarming rate, " ... and one of them begins to suspect that something more than bad luck is involved. The private eye Matt Scudder, the case is one of the most intriguing he's faced. Can the deaths really be a bizarre series of suicides and violent accidents? Or is there a pattern behind the seemingly random play of tragedy? And can Scudder identify the murderer before his awful scheme reaches its conclusion?" – from front fold over panel blurb. Softening and rubbing of the backstrip edges with a little rubbing of the book corners. Age toning of the textblock edges and pages. The book has been stored improperly and there is a slight bow to the boards. Rubbing of the dustwrapper edges and panels. A small tear to the top edge of the front panel; remnants of a sticker can be seen to the top right-hand corner of the front panel. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. [12], 13 - 285, [3] pages. . Please refer to accompanying picture (s). Quantity Available: 1. Category: Crime Fiction; United States; ISBN: 1857976495. ISBN/EAN: 9781857976496. Inventory No: 0129973. . 9781857976496


Matthew Scudder Crime Novel #12. "When Lawrence Block is in his Matthew Scudder mode, crime fiction can sidle up so close to literature that often there's no degree of difference" (The Philadelphia Inquirer).
