Notorious Nineteen Janet EvanovichDear Virginia:

I have received Notorious Nineteen by Janet Evanovich. Can you please clarify something for me. My understanding is that a 1st printing has a number 10 in the edition line. The one I received doesn't (it only goes up to 9). It's clearly a 1st edition but, on your website, you also quoted it as being a 1st printing.

Many Thanks,

Dear Colin:

They are and there is no "10" in the number line. The edition you have is a true first.

Thanks for checking!
