About this Item

Signed first British Edition and true first of author's extremely scarce first book. Slight wear, creasing to the front flap fold and some rubbing to dustwrapper. Introduces the detective team of Detective Sergeant Kathy Kolla and Detective Chief Inspector David Brock. Maitland, whose real career started in architecture, centers his mysteries on intellectual, scholarly or arcane special knowledge that makes this series particularly enjoyable. In The Marx Sisters, e.g., there is a puzzle over a missing revision to Marx's Das Kapital, in which the reader is invited to speculate whether Karl had some second thoughts about his earlier economic theories. One of our 100 Best titles. Bookseller Inventory # 0910080005
