A WANTED MAN. Lee Child. A WANTED MAN.
London: Bantam Press, (2012). First edition, preceding the American edition. SIGNED on title page. This one got a sterling review from Nick Burrows in London, who was offering copies for sale: "A Jack Reacher novel with the usual thin plot, slowly building suspense and Reacher's conclusive, righteous violence. I should have wearied of this formulaic stuff by now, but like all Child's other books, could barely put it down until finished." So true. Fine in dust jacket.

Published using the sheets of the first U.S edition (published by John Lane) and preceding the British first edition, published in 1921. The first appearance of Hercule Poirot.
