Random House, Inc., January 1994 FIRST EDITION. Brand New Hardcover Book, ISBN : 0679429220. Wonderful collector copy. It is in "NEW Condition". A highly praised literary nonfiction portrait of Savannah, Georgia. A surprise bestseller for over two years, going through dozens of printings, and later the basis for a movie. Very scarce first edition and certainly represents a small percentage of the total number of copies printed to date. The author interweaves a hugely entertaining first-person account of life in this isolated remnant of the Old South with the unpredictable twists and turns of a landmark murder case. Shots rang out in Savannah's grandest mansion in the misty, early morning hours of May. Was it murder or self-defense? Basis for the movie that starred Kevin Spacey and John Cusack. Splendid non-fiction account of a celebrated crime in Savannah, Georgia in which the author manages to capture the feel and character of the city and its residents. Signed bookplate. 388 pages.
