Item specifics

Condition: Good : Split the cost with friends
A book that has been read, but is in good condition. Minimal damage to the book cover eg. scuff marks, but no holes or tears. If this is a hard cover, the dust jacket may be missing. Binding has minimal wear. The majority of pages are undamaged with some creasing or tearing, and pencil underlining of text, but this is minimal. No highlighting of text, no writing in the margins, and no missing pages. See the seller’s listing for full details and description of any imperfections. See all condition definitions- opens in a new window or tab
Seller notes: The Book is very good, square and tight. It is unmarked, with clean pages free of inscriptions or marks and has been signed by the author directly on to the title page. There is a tiny bump to the bottom corner of the back board and slight curl to the top and bottom of the spine. The FEP has the witness marks of an erased pencil price. There is a pressure witness mark running across the back face of the jacket and board. The pages show the normal yellowing due to ageing. The Dust Jacket is very good, unfaded, unclipped (£17.99) and free of rips or tears. It has slight creasing along top and bottom edges.

Detailed Description

The Book is very good, square and tight. It is unmarked, with clean pages free of inscriptions or marks and has been signed by the author directly on to the title page. There is a tiny bump to the bottom corner of the back board and slight curl to the top and bottom of the spine. The FEP has the witness marks of an erased pencil price. There is a pressure witness mark running across the back face of the jacket and board. The pages show the normal yellowing due to ageing. The Dust Jacket is very good, unfaded, unclipped (£17.99) and free of rips or tears. It has slight creasing along top and bottom edges.

Synopsis

'A smile so cold, so bleak, so devoid of hope...only this perpetual, bitter...terminality.' In the affluent, historic town of Ludlow, a teenage boy dies in a fall from the castle ruins. Accident or suicide? No great mystery, so why does the boy's uncle, newly-retired detective sergeant Andy Mumford take his personal fears to diocesan exorcist Merrily Watkins? More people will die before Merrily, her own future uncertain, uncovers in those shadowed, medieval streets, a dangerous obsession with suicide, the nature of death and the afterlife.

Book Gradings

Below are the explanations for the book gradings we use in all our listings. A grade is given to both the book and the dust jacket where one is present. The format is 'Book Condition/Dust Jacket Condition' (e.g. Fine/Fine)

VERY FINE (VF): An excellent copy almost like new. Unread, but may have some very minor signs of ageing or handling. Many of the books offered as 'new' in the high street would not meet this standard. Any minor defects will be noted.

FINE (F): An very nice copy which may have some very minor shipping, shelving or storage defects to the dust jacket in form of rubs or scratches. The book possibly having very slight bumps to the boards. Any defects present will be noted.

VERY GOOD (VG): A lightly used or lightly read book showing some signs of wear on either the binding or the dust jacket. The dust jacket may be price clipped and the book may have bumps to the corners. All defects present will be noted.

We do not offer any books with a rating below very good despite several such ratings exist. We want our customers to be able to choose books from us with complete confidence in the quality of the book they order. We never sell any ex-library or book club editions, no matter how rare they may be.

Packaging & Posting

At Just Fiction Books we love all books and we hate to see them spoilt in the post for the sake of saving a couple of pence. We pride ourselves on the quality of our packaging whilst keeping the cost reasonable.

We protect all our books with an archive quality removable clear plastic wrapper before placing them in a plastic bag. We then securely bubble wrap them before sending them out in a strong corrugated box or special corrugated cardboard wrapper. We never use padded bags for any of our books.

For your peace of mind all our orders are inclusive of the appropriate insurance cover. We obtain certificates of posting for all items which provides insurance for up to £35 in value. For more expensive items we purchase additional insurance cover. Should an item go missing in the post, we will refund the cost of the book in full, but we are not able to guarantee to refund the postage costs unless Special Delivery within the UK has been chosen.

If the book is to be shipped outside the UK then please wait for us to send you an accurate invoice before paying for your book. The indicated P&P cost for international shipping is a guide only as the weight bands are very narrow. We guarantee it will not be more than the amount shown, but in many cases it will actually be less.

Presents & Gift Wrapping

We are pleased to offer a free of charge gift wrapping service should you want the book sent directly to someone as a present. We are also more than happy to add any message you would like and we will of course remove all references to the cost of the book for you. If you would like to use this service just send us a message through eBay messages, include a message with your PayPal payment or simply click on our logo at the bottom of this listing to email us directly.

Payments

We request all buyers to pay within 7 days of purchase please unless by prior arrangement. We prefer payment by PayPal either directly from your PayPal account or with any major credit card through the PayPal interface. We are also pleased to accept Personal Cheques, Bankers Drafts and Postal Orders from our UK Customers. If for any reason you are unable to pay within this timescale then please use eBay messages or click on our logo at the bottom of this listing to contact us. We are understanding reasonable people, we will respond quickly and try to come to an arrangement.
