About This Item

Toronto: Macmillan of Canada, 1989. 310 pp. Personalized inscription by Jack Batten on the front free endpaper. Beige boards lettered in black on the spine; headband. Light rubbing on the corners of the dustjacket; price intact; aside from the author's inscription, no interior markings. Jazz, cocaine, vietnamese triads, dope dealing yuppie lawyers, Crang, the unconventional criminal lawyer, has them all this time... He is hired by a sax player whose playing style is from the fifties but whose unwitting involvement in a complex coke-smuggling ring is far too modern. The investigation takes Crang from behind the scenes at the oh-so-chic film festival to a triad-run boozecan, and into the gang's inner sanctum.. Signed by Author(s). First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good+/Very Good+. 8vo. Book.
