About this Item

Handsomely bound in finely woven black cloth spine stamped brightly in gold, and paper-covered boards. Very clean and tight throughout, virtually unread. In a near-fine complete dust jacket designed by Honi Werner. Very clean with a touch of wear to the top of and bottom of the spine ends and a vertical crease at the inside edge of the rear flap. With the original price of $8.95 and the date code of "4764" at the top of the inside front flap. With a photograph of the rugged author on the rear inside flap. This copy is flat signed in full in blue ink on the title page: "Robert B. Parker." Full signatures have become quite scarce, especially in the early Spenser novels. The sixth novel in the Spenser series. Spenser is hired to protect a lesbian, feminist activist, the eponymous Rachel Wallace. Spenser defends her more vigorously than she would like and she fires him. Shortly afterwards, she is kidnapped and the police have almost nothing to go on. Though no longer officially employed to protect her, Spenser feels duty-bound to find her because he could have protected her if he had followed her orders and held onto the job. His investigation leads him to an organization that is fiercely anti-communist, anti-gay, and loosely affiliated with the local Ku Klux Klan. Spenser gets free rein to operate because the cops know that he can be more persuasive than they can in finding Rachel. A snowstorm paralyzes Boston and Spenser has to go on foot if he wants to get to Rachel Wallace before they kill her.
