First edition, first printing hardback in dustwrapper. 19.5 × 13cm, 320pp

In Berlin, where neither side of the wall is safe, Colonel Stok of Red Army Security is prepared to sell an important Russian scientist to the West—for a price. British intelligence are willing to pay, providing their own top secret agent is in Berlin to act as go-between. But it soon becomes apparent that behind the facade of an elaborate mock funeral lies a game of deadly manoeuvres and ruthless tactics. A game in which the blood-stained legacy of Nazi Germany is enmeshed in the intricate moves of cold war espionage…


Fair condition, really only a reading copy. The dustwrapper is creased with small tears and tanning to the edges. The book has a light lean to the spine and is tanned to the page edges. The binding is secure. General wear all over, not terrible but well-used, perfectly readable.
