[nice tight copy, no significant wear; faint soiling to front panel of jacket, spine lettering (orange on yellow) faded to near-unreadability]. INSCRIBED ("To __________ / Thank you for coming / to my virgin reading") and SIGNED by the author on the ffep. Her debut novel, a bibliomystery with a "wickedly hard-boiled female protagonist -- a part-time bookseller and full-time wise-ass, [who] buys a first edition Jack London from a slippery-looking dwarf." Unexpected adventure ensues when she sells the book, and then has to negotiate "a cast of B-movie thugs, sleazy book dealers, and ambitious Hollywood moguls" and get the book back -- "or else." [And before you ask: yes, this is the first printing of the first edition, stated as such with a full number line.] Signed by Author
