Edition: First printing.
New York: St Martin's, (1989) dj. Hardcover first edition - Author's first book - the mystery that introduced Sacramento private investigator Kat Colorado. Winner of the Anthony Award for Best First Mystery Novel. As the series grew, Kijewski became more popular, and copies of the earlier books, which were printed in relatively small quantities become harder to find. ISBN: 0-312-029691.
Condition: Near fine in a near fine dust jacket (a tight copy, minor rubbing to the dj as is common with virtually all copies of this inexpensively produced book.)
