About this Item

1st Printing. Signed. 378 pages. Published in 2015. The author's breakthrough debut novel. One of the most sensational literary debuts of our time. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only. Presents Kate Hamer's "The Girl In The Red Coat". Her first novel. "Compulsively readable, Kate Hamer catches at the threads of what parents fear most - the abduction of a child - and weaves a disturbing and original story. There is menace in this book, lurking in the shadows on every page, but also innocence, love, and hope. Beautifully written and unpredictable, I had to stop myself racing to the end to find out what happened" (Rosamund Lupton). "Early on we encounter a maze. But the whole book is a kind of maze, and one full of striking imagery and chilling atmosphere. Kate Hamer conjures mystery with such grace, cool beauty, and urgent suspense it never feels like a debut" (Matt Haig). The novel has also been endorsed by Kazuo Ishiguro, who, by his own admission, rarely does so (in this case, his wife loved the book). An absolute "must-have" title for Kate Hamer collectors. This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed and dated (five days after publication) in black pen on the title page by the author: "Kate Hamer 03 March 2015". It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. It also comes with a pristine copy of the Promotional Chapter Sampler that was issued by the publisher ahead of publication. This title is now collectible, an instant hit. This is one of few such signed and dated copies of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A scarce signed copy thus. One of the most brilliant new voices in British literature. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO PAULA HAWKINS TITLE IN OUR CATALOG) ISBN 0571313248. Bookseller Inventory # 19533

About this title

Synopsis:

She is the missing girl. But she doesn't know she's lost. Carmel Wakeford becomes separated from her mother at a local children's festival, and is found by a man who claims to be her estranged grandfather. He tells her that her mother has had an accident and that she is to live with him for now. As days become weeks with her new family, 8-year-old Carmel realises that this man believes she has a special gift...While her mother desperately tries to find her, Carmel embarks on an extraordinary journey, one that will make her question who she is - and who she might become.

Product Description:

Newly single mom Beth has one constant, gnawing worry: that her dreamy eight-year-old daughter, Carmel, who has a tendency to wander off, will one day go missing. And then one day, it happens: On a Saturday morning thick with fog, Beth takes Carmel to a local outdoor festival, they get separated in the crowd, and Carmel is gone. Shattered, Beth sets herself on the grim and lonely mission to find her daughter, keeping on relentlessly even as the authorities tell her that Carmel may be gone for good.
