Printing Details

First edition, first printing. Hardback in dustwrapper. 19 × 12.5cm, 158pp.

An afternoon's shooting in the country seems a pleasant prospect to Roger Taine, a respected family man with a distinguished military record. But when he discovers a poacher on his land, he fires a warning blast that stops the intruder dead in his tracks. Investigating further, Taine inadvertently uncovers a new-fascist plot which he is determined to thwart. A series of car chases, aeroplane drops and cross-country scrambles sharpen the mystery, but the adventure takes a new twist when Taine discovers that he himself is being pursued by the police.


The book itself is in very good condition with clean pages and secure binding. The dustwrapper suffers some chipping and loss along the top edge and spine ends but has not been price-clipped and is now within a protective sleeve.
