243 pp, 7" H. Dark blue cloth with red title block/gilt lettering on spine. Number 6 in the Uniform Edition (with "6" on dust jacket spine). "(A)n unusual, arresting book, a curious blend of realism and fantasy, of vivid actual detail and dramatic symbolism. In bare content it is a triller - the story of a gunman who has been hired by an armament firm to kill the head of a European State. But it is not the story which is so arresting, it is the psychological background, sinister and sardonic, against which it moves and the ironic and bitter conception of society which animates it." Julian Huxley (from the dust jacket flap). Previous owner's name stamp on front/rear pastedown - hidden by dust jacket flaps, price sticker (15/- net) over original printed price (10s 6d), minor edge wear to boards, browning to edges of text block, minor wrinkling at bottom of spine, very small bump to top corner of boards. Dust jacket has very light edge wear; light browning on spine, flap-folds and edges; light rubbing/soiling on rear panel; light wrinkling at bottom of spine; tiny faint liquid mark on spine.
