Book Description London, England: The Scorpion Press, 2001. Hardcover. Book Condition: As New. Dust Jacket Condition: As New. 1st Edition. 1st Printing. Signed. 298 pages. Published in 2001. The author's ninth novel. One of George P. Pelecanos' finest achievements. Limited Edition of 99 numbered and signed copies. Published as part of the eminently collectible Scorpion Press Series of great contemporary mystery and thriller novels. Precedes and should not be confused with the regular trade edition, British or American. The Limited Edition is now scarce. An austerely elegant production by The Scorpion Press: Regular-sized volume format. Marbled hard boards with black leather overboards and gilt titles embossed on spine, as issued. Text by Geoge P. Pelecanos. Introduction by the great American novelist Dennis Lehane. Red topstain. Printed on archival stock paper in the United Kingdom to the highest standards. In glassine DJ, as issued. Presents, in its Limited Edition collectible format, George P. Pelecanos' "Right As Rain". Introduces and marks the first appearance of a new Pelecanos hero in Derek Strange, an African-American retired cop in his mid-50's. Pelecanos' novels are set in Washington, DC, prompting his most ardent followers to call him the Emile Zola of the nation's capital. His novel goes deep into the worlds of drug dealing, police corruption, and racism. "As is usually the case with Pelecanos, it's the characters who give the story the gritty, dark twists that have become the author's trademark. The cast is wonderfully varied, yet Pelecanos manages to capture the essence of most of his characters with just a few descriptive licks. It's Strange, however, who steals the show. He's a mature man with a highly defined sense of who he is: An aging private eye who knows that his best weapons are his wit and wisdom. Pelecanos is that rare bird among Washington novelists, a writer who loves and knows the city he writes about" (Publishers Weekly). One of about five American thriller writers of our time who completely inhabit and transcend the thriller genre at the same time. An absolute "must-have" title for George P. Pelecanos collectors. This copy is one of the Limited Edition, indicated/numbered as such on the Front Limitation Page, and it is very prominently, neatly, and beautifully signed in black pen by George P. Pelecanos. This title is a contemporary classic. This is one of very few copies of the Limited Edition still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Please note: Copies available online command as much as $195. This is surely an accessible and lovely alternative. A rare signed copy thus. One of the finest American writers of our time. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER GEORGE P. PELECANOS AND HARLAN COBEN LIMITED EDITION TITLES IN OUR CATALOG) ISBN 1873567502. Signed by Author. Bookseller Inventory # 20582
