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 stranger’s 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 where’s the body? When the police search the house they find nothing. It’s vanished, as if by magic. It’s 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 it’s 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. Praise for Dolores Gordon-Smith ‘A classic post-war country house mystery with a Christie-like denoument’ Kirkus reviews ‘Recaptures the vitality and insouciance of the Golden Age writers’ Robert Barnard ‘Gordon-Smith’s clean-cut hero plays a straight bat… to be read while eating strawberries and listening to a brass band’ Saga Magazine ‘A spectacular debut…Jack Haldean is a very welcome addition to the annals of crime fiction… Mrs Gordon-Smith is at the beginning of a distinguished career as a crime writer’ Tangled Web.
