PAST TENSE: A Brady Coyne Novel.
Edition: First printing.
New York: St Martin's Minotaur, (2001) dj. SIGNED hardcover first edition - The eighteenth mystery featuring Boston lawyer Brady Coyne, divorced, fortyish, with a wry sense of humor and a passion for fishing - this one set mostly on Cape Cod. Publisher and bookseller Otto Penzler in his review described Coyne as "one of those mystery heroes in whom decency is perhaps the paramount characteristic. . .
A steady intelligence is always present, and the reader increasingly appreciates the carefulness with which his creator regards the human condition: the relationships between men and women, parents and children, workers and their colleagues, the guilty and the innocent. Betrayal, above all, is something he seems to have made a special area of study." SIGNED on the title page and dated in the month of publication. 292 pp. ISBN: 0-31228442x.
Condition: Fine in fine dust jacket.
