Scaredy Cat [Signed]

London: Little, Brown, 2002. First Edition, First Printing. Hardcover. A Very Good copy of the first edition, first printing (spine ends pushed, lower leading corner of each board bumped, pages toned), in a Fine dust jacket, SIGNED BY MARK BILLINGHAM on the title page; a novel inspired by the real-life kidnapping of Billingham and his writing partner Peter Cocks who were bound, gagged, and held hostage in their Manchester, England hotel room by three masked men who stole their property, including their credit cards, and instilled in the writers a feeling of menace and fear. As Billingham stated: "The general theme of Scaredy Cat is really the power of fear, and that fear is a very powerful weapon, and if you are prepared to instill it, you have a very powerful weapon that is every bit as dangerous as a gun or a knife. Also what happened to me in that hotel room fed directly into a sub-plot in Scaredy Cat with some very nasty crimes carried out in hotel-rooms." The novel won the Sherlock Award for "Best Detective Novel Created by a UK Author", and was also nominated for the Crime Writers Association Gold Dagger for "Best Crime Novel of the Year". A Very Good copy of Billingham's second published novel (and his second Tom Thorne novel), a very-well received and early Mark Billingham novel inspired by a time of real horror in the author's life, and SIGNED BY MARK BILLINGHAM. Fine / fine. Item #734
