1 Block, Lawrence Hope to Die
New York William Morrow and Company Inc 2001 First Edition Cloth Fine Fine Signed by Author
Twenty-Five years ago, Lawrence Block, who is a Grand Master of The Mystery Writers of America, introduced his acclaimed unlicensed private investigator, Matt Scudder, to the New York crime scene. This character remains one of the most complex and richly human protagonists in noir fiction as he pursues a faceless adversary with a unique talent and taste for murder. This First edition and First printing of Hope To Die is in fine condition and has never been read. It is signed directly on the title page by Lawrence Block. It is an advance copy of the hardcover first edition and it still contains the publisher's literature that was sent out to bookstores. This material contains a plot summary, a list of awards that have been given to Mr. Block, an article about Lawrence Block and a three page schedule of his book tour for the year 2001. There are no flaws to this book. All corners are square and the book is not price-clipped. There are no tears to the dustjacket and the book appears to have come off the presses yesterday. The plot concerns the double murder of a prominent New York attorney and his novelist wife. New Yorkers breathe a collective sigh of relief when the two killers are found dead less than a week later with clear forensic evidence linking them to the crime. The police are wrong. The killer is still out there and no one but Matt Scudder has a clue that he exists. The story is exciting and tense. The book is beautiful.Another New York Times Bestselling novel from Lawrence Block. This copy is signed on the title page. Pre-publication material from the publisher laid-in. Fine copy. We are happy to send pictures on request,
