Advance reading copy, signed by the author. Advance reading copy, 1998, signed by the author on the title page. Softcover. 386pp. No jacket - as issued. Three troubled characters' lives converge beneath Chicago's shadowy streets. Under Chicago's famous Loop, a homeless woman believes that the blood of the Virgin Mary is seeping through a crack in a concrete wall. When this wall becomes the centre of the lives of a disparate group of people - a troubled young woman, an opera singer, and an idealistic psychiatrist - the result is a haunting tale of how we all must grapple with the ghosts of the past. When a mysterious woman appears at the wall during a violent storm, the lives of these three are changed irrevocably. A magical, unforgettable tale of myth and madness. Book in good condition. Covers a little soiled and residue of a small sticker to upper cover. Corner tips slightly creased and a diagonal crease across lower cover.
