About this Item

After three earlier books with a co-author, this is the acclaimed mystery writers fourth novel written solo, When a congressman jumps on the stage with a stripper, he is recognized and when blackmailed, he turns to Moldy Moldowski, a political fixer who attempts to fix the problem. Nice collectible copy, signed by the author on the title page, without any other names or markings, no remainder mark, and tightly bound, perhaps unread. The DJ is likewise unworn, clean, and bright, but as typical with this book, appears to show slight sunning on the spne area. Now protected by a mylar sleeve. Bookseller Inventory # 002664
