Sometimes don't you just wish you had the opportunity to buy a first edition first printing of an Agatha Christie book?
Doodled Books is thrilled that new author Dolores Gordon-Smith has exclusively created a special doodled limited edition of her novel Mad About the Boy?.
Dolores is following in the footsteps of Catriona McPherson at Constable and Robinson who has just signed a £XXXXXXXX contract with Hodder and Stoughton. We think it's only a matter of time before a major publisher takes the series on.
This is Dolores third book in the Jack Haldean Murder Mystery Series - approximately 1200 books make up the first print run.
The books are also numbered 1-50 and double signed by the author and cover artist Ken Leeder.
About the book
George Lassiter is destitute, ill and desperate. Desperate enough to break into the kitchen of a strangers house for warmth, food and shelter. And there, on that bitterly cold night in 1922, he witnesses a murder, the murder of a beautiful girl. But wheres the body? When the police search the house they find nothing. Its vanished, as if by magic. Its nothing but a hallucination born of delerium, say the police. And reluctantly, George is forced to agree. Even his friend and rescuer Jack Haldean believes its a nightmare but the consequences of that nightmare will plunge Jack into a tangle of theft, lies and obsession as George hunts for his inheritance - and Jack hunts a ruthless killer.
