Berg, Barry - Hide and Seek

New York, St. Martin's, 1989. INSCRIBED ('Barry') to front free endpaper. First edition. Author's first novel. Richard Knowles is a pretty typical fifteen-year-old kid.  Except for the four pounds of cocaine sewn into his jacket--a jacket that his father gave him as he was boarding the plane from South America!  So the cops, customs, his own dad, and some thugs are looking for Richard in a deadly game of hide and seek.  Near fine, DJ shows slight wear with chipping to extremities. $22.00.
