First edition, first printing. Original green cloth with gilt lettering to the spine, in dustwrapper. A better than very good copy, the binding square and firm with a little pushing to the base of the spine and very light spotting to the top edge of the page block. The contents remain clean throughout, without previous owner's inscriptions or stamps. Complete with the pictorial dustwrapper, designed by Neil/Leila Godfrey, which is a little rubbed to extremities (most noticeably to the top of the spine) and along folds, with a few nicks and tears to edges and minor toning to the spine. Not price-clipped (30s net to the front flap). A clean, attractive copy.
The author's debut novel and the first of the Courtney books.
