A near-fine first edition, in the original red cloth binding. There is some light foxing to the edge of the page block, and small amounts of the red colour have worn away at the bottom corners of the spine. In a good, price-clipped dust jacket. There are small chips missing to all four corners near the spine, as well as chips to the corners of the book. There are several small tears to the front flap fold.
Theodore Honey is a shy, inconspicous aircraft engineer whose eccentric interests in quantum mechanics and spiritualism are frowned upon in aviation circles. But when a passenger plane crashes in unexplained circumstances, Honey must convince his superiors that his unorthodox theories are correct before more lives are lost.
