Lovesey's first mystery, and winner of the Panther/Macmillan First Crime Novel Competition. Set in London of the late nineteenth century, murder is committed during a bizarre athletic/endurance competition. Sadly, the natural enemy of the book (no, not an insect or drooling adolescent or vermin, but worse, the librarian) has gotten at this one, thus the book is graded as Fr only, w/two tape stains to each of front and back covers, lighter tape stains to end papers/pastedowns, library stamp/discard stamp to copyright page, library stamp to rear pastedown, rear end paper excised, strong tanning, a bit of internal soil. Price-clipped dust jacket w/moderate edgewear, smudging to rear panel, considerable crinkling/handling wear, small piece of tape to reverse spine. Fortunately, the dust jacket was not library-laminated. Affixed to front panel is Panther/Macmillan sticker announcing the book as winner of the competition. Offered to fill that hole in your collection until you can afford the megabucks signed copy in pristine shape.
