1 Walters, Minette The Dark Room
New York, NY, U.S.A. Putnam's 1996 0399140786 / 9780399140785 First Edition, First Printing Hardcover SIGNED by the Author
Fine in a Fine dustjacket. Black boards. The spine is gilt-stamped. Gray endpapers. 381pps. An excellent, collector's-quality copy: clean, tight, square, and bright. All tips are sharp. The text is immaculate; no reading wear and no previous ownership markings. The dustjacket, glossy in a new mylar sleeve, is lightly rubbed; no chips, soiling, or tears. The original price is intact. SIGNED by the author -- without further inscription -- on the title-page. ".When Jinx Kingsley, respected fashion photographer and only daughter of millionaire Adam Kingsley, is found unconscious in the wreckage of a mysterious car accident on an abandoned airfield, the police suspect a suicide attempt. Blood samples taken at the scene reveal an alarmingly high blood-alcohol level, and authorities discover that just one day prior to the accident, neighbors found an unconscious Jinx parked in her garage with the car engine running. Matters are further complicated when it is learned that Jinx's fiance has run away with her best friend, and neither can be located for questioning. Dazed, confused, and suffering from post-traumatic amnesia, Jinx is placed in an exclusive private clinic, where she struggles to regain her memory with the help of Dr. Alan Protheroe. As their professional relationship grows and the dialogue between them deepens, Protheroe starts to see Jinx as the woman she really is: brilliant, strong-willed, and by her own admission far too proud to kill herself. At first, Jinx can remember nothing about her alleged suicide attempt. But with Protheroe's help, memories begin to surface -- memories of desperation and absolute terror."

Fine in a Fine dustjacket. Pale blue-green boards with a darker blue backstrip. Both the spine and the front board are stamped in silver. 371pps.

SIGNED by the author -- without further inscription -- on the half-title page.

"...November 1978. The winter of discontent. Britain is on strike. The dead lie unburied, garbage piles in the streets -- and somewhere in West London a black woman dies in a rain-filled gutter. Known as 'Mad Annie,' she was despised by her neighbors.
Her passing would have gone unmourned and unnoticed but for the young woman who finds her and who believes -- apparently against reason-that Annie was murdered.
But whatever the truth about Annie -- whether she was as mad as her neighbors claimed, whether she lived in squalor as the police said, whether she cruelly mistreated the cats found starving in her house -- something passed between her and Mrs. Ranelagh in the moment of death that binds this one woman to her cause for the next twenty years.
But why is Mrs. Ranelagh so convinced it was murder, when, by her own account, Annie died without speaking? Why does the subject make her husband so angry that he refuses to talk about what happened that night? And why would any woman spend twenty painstaking years uncovering the truth-unlessher reasons are personal?..."
