About This Item

2,UK,12mo p/back,1st edns.['MIAMI VICE: HELLHOLE.' and 'DON JOHNSON.'] FINE-, respectively.No owner inscrptns and no price removal from covers; with negligible shelf-wear,bumping,creasing to edges and corners - no nicks or tears present.All books unread with no spine reading creases or intentional dog-ear reading creases to any pages' corners - unread,apart from my own collation.Exception Don Johnson biography with rear cover with top corner accidently creased and rear free endpaper also with an accidental,but slightly larger corner crease.All edges inevitably aged/toned,some with minimal blemish.
Based on the Universal television series of same name,created by Anthony Yerkovitch,
'MIAMI VICE' No.6 adapted from the episodes 'Walk Alone' by W.K. Scott Meyer and 'shadow in the Dark' by Chuck Adamson.
'Don Johnson' - Biography,contains 16pp of subject contemporary biographical,b/w photographs.
A triumph of sound and vision over narrative content,the show cast two relative unknowns in the starring roles:Don Johnson as Caucasian designer-stubbled detective Sonny Crockett; and Philip Michael Thomas as his black partner,Ricardo Tubbs.Undercover vice cops in sleazy neon- toned Miami,Crockett and Tubbs pursued bad guys whilst looking good in Versace clothing and Crockett's Ferrari Spider (later Ferrari Testarossa),all done to the adrenalin-pumping accompaniment of rock music tracks (either specially commissioned,or brought in from established stars such as the Rolling Stones and Tina Turner - 'MTV Cops.'
Don Johnson - At the tender age of 12 he was convicted of auto theft, did time in a reformatory,and by the time he was 16 he had moved in with a woman 10 years older.
A self-confessed "misfit" who has "been through drugs and alcohol and outlaws and thieves," Johnson has had many amorous exploits which have led to three marriages (one to actress Melanie Griffith,whom he first met and wooed when he was 22 - and she was only 14!) and numerous affairs,including one with a former Miss World.
Between bit parts in flops,cocaine and booze,and varied love interests, Johnson was going nowhere fast.Until,that is,he got a job on a show about cool cops.Very cool cops. . . .
