Book Description Hodder & Stoughton, 2001. Hardcover. Condition: Near Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Fine. 1st Edition. This is a signed, near fine first edition, first impression in a fine dust wrapper. There are no marks or inscriptions of any kind. The only writing is the author s neat signature to the title page. The book is tight and square with age toning to the edges of the page block (just sufficient to prevent a grading of fine ). The black boards are pristine as is the silver lettering to the spine. The unclipped dust wrapper is complete with no tears or creases. The colours are vibrant. The original price of 17.99 remains. The dust wrapper is now protected by a removable, acid free acetate sleeve. The book presents as new and unread. Mr Taylor is one of the UK s most supremely talented authors. He attended Cambridge University where he took a degree in English before becoming a writer after a spell at the University of London. He is probably best known for his Bergerac novels. However, with due respect to our Channel Island s sleuth, Mr Taylor is a writer of much greater talent and diversity than is perhaps evident in that series of 5 books. Mr Taylor has won a plethora of awards including the Cartier Diamond Dagger, the most prestigious British award for general excellence in writing. Death s Own Door is the sixth in a series of eight novels that have come to be known as the Lydmouth Series . Lydmouth is supposedly a town in the borderlands between England and Wales. The novels are set in the late 1940s and 1950s and are written with chronological integrity. The main protagonists are Richard Thornhill (a Detective Inspector recently transferred from East Anglia) and Jill Francis (a journalist from London with a skeleton in her cupboard). Each is new to the area and in succeeding novels we learn more of the village and its inhabitants through their eyes. Hence, the books are best read sequentially. This is probably the finest book of the series and demonstrates Mr Taylor at the top of his game. It is certainly our reviewer s favourite. No less a personage than Francis Fyfield wrote of it In the phrase coined in this era of surly pubs and poor food, [Mr Taylor] has carved a classic detective story which is deceptively cool, but critically smashing . Praise indeed. In this quite lovely condition, this book will be a worthy addition to any library or collection. The images you see are high resolution scans of the actual book you will receive. It will be dispatched via The Royal Mail in protective packaging. We do not charge postage to buyers within the UK. We offer a 7 day no quibble full refund if the item is not as described and shown. Extra scans are available on request. We have most of Mr Taylor s novels in our catalogue. We welcome enquiries. Signed by Author(s). Seller Inventory # 1283
