INSCRIBED by Gores to late Oklahoma collector, Larry Owens on the title page with a long and informative inscription that begins: "Skip is the first DKA and the most procedural. Except for the murders and the attack on Bart Haslip, it's almost exactly a replay of real life. . . " He then goes on to suggest comparing several pages to a Don Westlake novel to see something they dreamed up "one boozy night in 1971.". ISBN: 0-394481577.
