Very good burgundy cloth hardback with silver titles to spine. Cover is in very good condition with a little fading along the top edge. Some light foxing to endpapers. Toning to top edge of text block. Soundly bound. William Randell cover design.
Dustjacket is fair to good - rubbed with some soiling and creasing to edges, and some taped tear repairs on the reverse. Price clipped. Foxing to reverse.
Text is nice and clean throughout.
A fairly scarce English thriller novel set in Greece.
