Presents Robert Crais' "The Last Detective". Indefatigable. "While attorney Lucy Chenier is away on business and her ten-year-old son, Ben, is staying with Elvis, Ben disappears without a trace. Amid the maelstrom of personal conflicts, Elvis and his enigmatic partner Joe Pike are forced to consider a troubling lead, one indicating that Ben's disappearance is connected to a terrible, long-held secret from Elvis Cole's past" (Publisher's blurb). His previous career as the screenwriter for the long-running television series, "Hill Street Blues" and "L. A. Law", has served Robert Crais well in his second career as a serious mystery/thriller writer. An absolute "must-have" title for Robert Crais collectors. This copy is very prominently, neatly, and beautifully signed in black pen-marker on the title page by Robert Crais. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. He signed on top of the page, making his signature stand out even more. This title is now collectible. This is one of very few such signed 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 finest American novelists of our time. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER ROBERT CRAIS TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). Bookseller Inventory # 10210
