Fine first edition, with slight lean to spine. Small stain to top of page block, and some yellowing to page block. In a near-fine unclipped dust jacket with some wear to corners and a small tear to front cover. Some discoloration to white surfaces.

Only Patrick Dawlish could decide whether to take the gamble which might find the criminals and save the kidnapped girl.
