First U. S. edition. Author's first novel. Signed and dated by the author on the title page. Originally published in the U. K. as a trade paperback this is a limited hardcover edition of the author's acclaimed first novel. Never underestimate a librarian. Comfortably padded and in her middle years, Shona McMonagle may look bookish and harmless, but her education at the Marcia Blaine School for Girls has left her with a deadly expertise in everything from martial arts to quantum physics. It has also makes her the perfect recruit for a new and interesting project: Time-travel to Tsarist Russia, prevent a gross miscarriage of romance, and—in any spare time—see to it that only the right people get murdered. As new, unread copy in dust jacket.
