A fair first edition, signed by the author. There is a large bump to the back bottom board, which has torn the binding. There is also some bruising to the top of the spine. In a good unclipped dust jacket, with bruising to the spine and a small tear to the back flap to match the bump on the board.

Flick Clairet, a young British secret agent, proposes a daring new plan: she will parachute into France with an all-woman team known as the 'Jackdaws' and they will penetrate the chateau in disguise. But, unknown to Flick, Rommel has assigned a brilliant, ruthless Intelligence colonel, Dieter Franck, to crush the Resistance. And Dieter is on Flick's trail . . .
