About this title


New, and immaculate, First Edition / First Printing. See scans and description. New York: Vanguard Press, 2009. Nevada Barr's "13 1/2", a New Orleans psychological thriller with protagonist Polly Deschamps. Octavo, illustrated jacket, black boards with gilt spine imprinting, 311 pp. New, gorgeous, never read, sealed archivally upon purchase. See all scans. Polly, a literature professor in New Orleans, never knew about the Butcher Boy, a child serial killer in 1970s Minnesota. She also doesn't know that he's now released from prison, and headed...south. Visceral, electrifying, emotionally wringing-out are some of the descriptors in the blurbs for this tortuous psychological crucible. Ships in a new, sturdy, protective box - not a bag. L8n

From the Back Cover:

In 1971, the state of Minnesota was rocked when coverage of the "Butcher Boy", who brutally murdered his own family, swept across newspapers and television screens nationwide. Now, in present-day New Orleans, Polly Deschamps finds herself at yet another lonely crossroads in her life. No stranger to tragedy, Polly was a runaway at the age of fifteen, escaping a nightmarish Mississippi childhood.

But then Polly encounters architect Marshall Marchand and is immediately smitten. Marshall is handsome, charming and intelligent, and before long, even Polly's daughters from her previous marriage love him. Inevitably, they marry. As Polly begins to settle into her new life, she becomes uneasy about her husband's increasing dark moods. And then there's the ominous prediction by a New Orleans tarot card reader that says Polly will murder her husband. Could Marshall and his eccentric brother, Danny, be keeping a dark secret from Polly, one that will shatter the happiness she so desperately wants?
