    Just the one copy.  A friend of mine borrowed it to read and banged it up, traveling around with it in her purse on a trip.  The other was left behind since I did not know the scarcity of the title and have tried my best not to be a pirate.
      It''s a great read.  Sort of flips the femme fatale convention.
