Signed Bookplate Edition

She’s got ice in her heart and a kiss on her lips…

1939, New York. Private Eye, Melody Malone, is hired to find a stolen ruby, the Eye of Horus. The ruby might hold the secret to the location of Cleopatra’s tomb – but everyone who comes into contact with it dies. Can Melody escape the ruby’s curse?

1939, New York. River Song, author of the Melody Malone Mysteries, is forced to find a reality-altering weapon, the Eye of Horus – but everyone who comes into contact with it dies. River doesn’t believe in curses – but is she wrong?

From the top-security confines of Stormcage to the barbarism of first-century Egypt, River battles to find the Eye of Horus before its powers are used to transform the universe. To succeed, she must team up with a most unlikely ally – her own fictional alter ego, Melody. And together they must solve another mystery: Is fiction changing into fact – or is fact changing into fiction?

    Thanks Booboo! I missed out on the upcoming signed Target books because FP isn’t shipping to the US right now. But I was pleased to see Waterstones is, so I’ve snatched up a copy of this!

    Do Waterstones take payment upon ordering, of when the item is released/dispatched?

    Thanks fr the Heads up. The chances of meeting Alex Kingston. to get a signed anything, is less than not a chance. so this was a nice surprise. more Expensive than Hive Books £12.65, but sometimes a treeat costs more.

    Brilliant .

      I use waterstones all the time. I don’t mind paying full price for the books as i have a loyalty card that builds up and allows me to take money off other orders. And they do normally send stuff out early.

    I’ve used Waterstones before for signed editions when I could not attend. Always great service and no extra charges.

      down to anonymous, just held back as we dont know if FP may do the same but Waterstones are charging no extra so that’s good

      Waterstones never charge extra but they do charge full price for the book generally. I get a lot of signed books for them and they’ve always been good. I got the Richard osman book signed and delivered early as well. When i saw this i was surprised as they don’t normally have who books signed. Oh, i posted on the questions page to let people know but forgot to put my username again

      FP are the same, they never charge extra, I would rather pay a few pounds more for a signed bookplate edition than a bog standard discounted book.

      Totally agree. Sometimes the books are exclusive editions. So for instance the Richard osman book had extra material in the form of a deleted chapter. Others like this one are just signed.
