Comments & Further Information

A first UK edition hardback with a single #1 as the number sequence indicating a first printing.  Bump to head and tail of book spine and some light tanning to pages.  Some slight foxing to top edges of pages not affecting text.  The dust jacket is complete, still shows the price and there is some very light creasing to the bottom of the spine (corresponding with the bump) and at the top edge of  the rear panel of an otherwise clean and tidy dust jacket.

SYNOPSIS:  “On the windscreen of his SUV, Billy finds the first note:  ‘If you don’t take this note to the police and get them involved, I will kill a lovely blonde school teacher somewhere in Napa County.  If you do take this note to the police, I will instead kill an elderly woman active in charity work.  You have six hours to decide.  The choice is yours.’

Billy takes the note to an acquaintance, Lanny Olson, who is a policeman – he thinks the note is a prank.  The schoolteacher dies first…”
