Signed with her pseudonymFirst edition, first impression, signed by the author on the title page as Robert Galbraith. The first printing of the first edition ran to at least 1,500 copies, with a cover which features a quote from Val McDermid, while the back cover has quotes from Mark Billingham and Alex Gray. The copyright page does not have a number line but simply states "First published in Great Britain in 2013 by Sphere".
