Publication: The Mysterious Press, 1984, New York

First edition. Inscribed. Fine in dust jacket with tiny wear to head of spine and very light rubbing to front cover. Det. Sgt. Lloyd Hopkins is the most brilliant homicide detective in the Los Angeles Police Department. A hero cop named Jacob Herzog has disappeared and a multiple homicide in which the killer used a pre-Civil War revolver remains unsolved. As Hopkins pieces the puzzle together, the story which emerges is a frightening one. The two cases are related and the motivating force behind them is cloaked in layers of darkness. Within that darkness lurks John Havilland.
