First edition. Small "ding" to bottom edge of rear cover, else fine in lightly rubbed dust jacket with minor wear to head of spine, light vertical creases to inside front flap fold, and two tint closed tears to top edge of rear cover. Dope smuggling and a witness who is both more, and less, than he seems. It all starts when a client wants to find a missing writer – just to talk to him. A little digging (with descriptions of tracing techniques) shows his girlfriend has vanished too, and the trail goes south, to the Mexican border. Crossing the trail, going north, is a shipment of cannabis. Unsurprisingly for this business, someone ends up dead and the whole thing lands in court. Sorting out who did what and why taxes even Donald Lam's talents to the limit. Lam shows his considerable ability in courtroom maneuvering, which reminds the reader that he was a lawyer once. Twenty ninth and last book in the Donald Lam/Bertha Cool mystery series.
