Ross Thomas writing as Oliver Bleeck. A bright UK first edition, first impression.
Wrapper : The wrapper on this copy is very bright, is unfaded and is complete. It is unclipped. It shows a touch of rubbing to the spine ends and a trace of toning to the white back panel. Looks very sharp.
Book : The book is square and very tight. There are no previous ownership inscriptions. The boards are clean and unfaded. The pages are clean and bright. No foxing. The closed page edges are slightly dusty - the blue top edge is gently faded. No dog-eared pages. The binding is tight, the hinges are solid. A pleasing copy in a protected wrapper.
