London: Collins, 1959. [Spy Thriller] FIRST EDITION. Octavo (19 x 13cm), pp.256. Publisher's hardback cloth binding in pictorial dust-jacket illustrated by John Rose. Contents clean, edges very gently toned, a few light marks to endpapers, price-clipped jacket with a few small nicks and tears. Near fine. A rare book in first edition. The first of two suspense novels featuring Peter Feltham, a former British Commando. Berkely Mather's novels were favourably reviewed by Ian Fleming for the Sunday Times, and, at Fleming's request, Mather later contributed to the screenplay for the first James Bond film 'Dr. No' (1962). This copy later formed part of the archive assembled by Jon Gilbert (pencil signature within). His comprehensive guide to the works of Ian Fleming (2012) won the 16th Breslauer Prize for bibliography. Item #67668
