A good first edition, in the original binding. The top and bottom of the spine have lost the blue coloration. In a fair, unclipped dust wrapper, with a chip missing at the top of the spine, a large tear at the bottom of the spine, and wear along the edges.
At a party in the Hollywood Hills, Stephen Monk finds his wife in the arms of another man. Betrayed and furious, he packs his belongings and returns to the home he was born in. There he begins to retrace the steps that have brought him to this crisis. He is reminded of his own betrayals and weaknesses. But most of all, the memory of his lost love, Elizabeth Rydal, haunts him. Can he forgive his wife, and most importantly, himself?
