FIELD OF BLOOD.
Edition: First US printing.
Boston: Little Brown, (2005.) dj. SIGNED hardcover first edition - The 5th novel by this exceptionally good writer, one who writes complex and satifsfying mysteries, with very real characters. The first book in the Paddy Meehan series, 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 the title page. Barry award for best British crime novel. 360 pp. ISBN: 0-316-735930.
Condition: Near fine in near fine dust jacket (usual toning to the pages.)
