First edition. PBO. Inscribed. Fine in pictorial wrappers. From the author who brought us California Thriller comes the second Mike Haller mystery. Inscription reads, "To---, I got the idea for this book from wandering around the Cliff House in San Francisco, and I actually sketched out the last scene (in the water) first. This is probably my best-plotted book. I remember that it was fun to write." Muriel Contreras, a high-priced hooker, is informed by PI Mike Haller that she'd inherited a fortune. Trouble is, someone doesn't want her to live to collect it. If he isn't able to murder Muriel, he'll kill anyone who tries to help her!
