First edition, first printing of the last Lew Archer novel. Presentation copy, inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper: “To Harris [Seed]. One of the best friends, and the best lawyer, a writer ever had. Ken.” Laid-in is a holograph draft of the opening paragraphs of the novel, which are notably different to the published version, offering a fascinating insight into the author’s method of composition.

Octavo. Original black cloth-backed blue boards, titles to spine gilt, top edge yellow. With the dust jacket. Spine rolled, board edges lightly faded, internally fine. An excellent copy in the bright jacket.
