London, Heinemann, 1988. First Edition. First Impression. Adams' second Dirk Gently novel. The three Dirk Gently novels have been widely adapted for, amongst others, the stage and radio, almost to the same extent as the better-known Hitch Hiker's series. The final book, The Salmon of Doubt remained unfinished upon Adams' untimely death. A near fine copy with just the lightest shelf wear. Signed by the author to the title page without inscription.
