A near-fine US first edition. There is some slight push-in to top and bottom of the spine, minor wear to the corners, and a slight bump to the top edge of the front cover. In a near-fine unclipped dust jacket, with push-in to the spine to match the book and a small wrinkle near the bottom rear corner.
When LAPD detective Harry Bosch shot and killed Norman Church - the 'Dollmaker' - the police were convinced it marked the end of the search for one of the city's most bizarre serial killers.
But four years later, Norman Church's widow is taking Bosch to court, accusing him of killing the wrong man. To make matters worse, Bosch has just received a note, eerily reminiscent of the ones the Dollmaker used to taunt him with, giving him a location where a body can be found.
Is the Dollmaker still alive? Or is this the work of a vicious copycat killer, determined to repeat the Dollmaker's grisly feats and destroy Bosch's career in the process?
