New York: Little Brown, 1992. First Edition. Hardcover. Author's first book. This copy is inscribed by the author on the title page. Not only is this the first book by Michael Connelly, it is also the debut of one of the great detectives of the modern era, one Harry Bosch. This book won the Edgar Award and is the basis for the cable series. For maverick LAPD homicide detective Harry Bosch, the body in the drainpipe at Mulholland Dam is more than another anonymous statistic. This one is personal...because the murdered man was a fellow Vietnam "tunnel rat" who had fought side by side with him in a hellish underground war. Now Bosch is about to relive the horror of Nam. From a dangerous maze of blind alleys to a daring criminal heist beneath the city, his survival instincts will once again be tested to their limit. Pitted against enemies inside his own department and forced to make the agonizing choice between justice and vengeance, Bosch goes on the hunt for a killer whose true face will shock him.The blue wrap-a-round band offered $5 off, and, of course, we will honor that and throw in free priority mail shipping. A nearly fine crisp copy in a nearly fine dust jacket with the promotional band. Item #12620
