London: Jonathan Cape, 1976. [Thriller] FIRST EDITION. Octavo (23 x 15cm), pp.240. Publisher's black cloth, top page edge tinted blue, photographic endpapers depicting the sky at night, photographic dustwrapper. No inscriptions or price-clipping. A clean, fine copy. Not a scarce book, yet elusive in truly fine condition like this, presumably as it was such a popular read. With comparisons to Graham Greene and Ian Fleming (on front flap), Deighton first arrived on the shady scene in 1962 and was described by Julian Symons as 'the poet of the spy story'. Item #53635
