1st Printing. Signed. 310 pages. Published in 1991. The author's "Nathan Conrad" novel. 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. The First Edition is now scarce. Presents Andrew Klavan's "Don't Say A Word". Unputdownable. "New York City psychiatrist Nathan Conrad possesses everything required for a good, normal life: A successful practice on Central Park West, an adoring wife, and a lovely daughter. He also has a reputation for dealing with the hard cases that most of his uptown colleagues prefer to pass on: Catatonics, schizophrenics, the criminally insane. In this taut, superbly plotted thriller, Klavan interweaves Dr. Conrad's disparate worlds to riveting effect. Soon after he begins treating a young woman accused of a particularly brutal murder, Conrad receives a chilling phone call at home. Suddenly his safe private life becomes a nightmarish game board, with Sport and Maxwell, two vividly drawn psychopaths, key players in his terrifying ordeal. Maxwell smiles and hums when he hurts people; Sport finds this a handy behavior in an accomplice. And the reader, meanwhile, roots for Dr. Conrad all the way to this brisk novel's heart-stopping conclusion" (Publishers Weekly). An absolute "must-have" title for Andrew Klavan collectors. This copy is very boldly and beautifully signed in black pen-marker on the title page by Andrew Klavan. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. This title is now collectible. This is one of 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 mystery novelists of our time. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER ANDREW KLAVAN TITLES IN OUR CATALOG) ISBN 0671740083. Bookseller Inventory # 10770
