FIELD OF BLOOD.
Edition: Advance Reading Copy (trade paperback format. )
Boston: Little Brown, (2005.). SIGNED first edition - The 5th novel by this exceptionally good writer, one who writes complex and satifsfying mysteries, with very real characters - this is set in Glasgow in 1981 and features a young Irish girl who has a job as a 'gofer' for the newspaper, but is determined to be a journalist herself. I cannot describe Mina's appeal as a writer better than Michael Connelly did when her said "[Her] work is really quite wonderful. She has an original voice, rough-and-tumble one moment, heart-touching the next. She paints a big picture with the subtleties of true life. It took only one book for me to become a fan." SIGNED on title page. Barry award for best British crime novel. 359 pp.
Condition: Very good in glossy illustrated wrappers (a bit of wear to covers, some notes on last blank page.)
