First edition. Signed by the author. Fine in dust jacket. "A first novel written in the form of three separate crime novels, each set in a different decade and penned in the style of a different giant of the mystery genre. The body found in the gutter in France led the police inspector to the dead man's beautiful daughter - and to her hot-tempered American husband. A hardboiled private eye hired to keep a movie studio's leading lady happy uncovers the truth behind the brutal slaying of a Hollywood starlet. A desperate man pursuing his last chance at redemption finds himself with blood on his hands and the police on his trail... Three complete novels that, taken together, tell a single epic story, about an author whose life is shattered when violence and tragedy consume the people closest to him."
