One Good Turn
London, Doubleday, (2006). The second of her acclaimed mystery novels featuring Jackson Brodie, which have pushed the boundaries of the genre. Signed (initialed) by the author. With two dust jackets, both the normal trade edition dust jacket and a variant that lacks a price on the front flap: we would declare this the export edition jacket but for two other changes: the heading "Case Histories" on the rear panel is in a variant typeface, and the front flap copy runs three more lines (owing to line breaks, rather than variant text). Atkinson's first novel, Behind the Scenes at the Museum, won the 1995 Whitbread Book of the Year Award and her 2013 alternate-histories novel, Life After Life, also earned her significant acclaim far outside of the mystery genre, both in the U.K. and in the U.S., and itself won several awards. Fine, in two fine dust jackets. [#031653] $200
