First UK edition. Publisher's original blue cloth with dark blue lettering to the upper board and spine, in dustwrapper. A very good copy, the binding firm with some bumping to the lower edges and spine tips, the spine a touch rolled. The cloth is bright and fresh. The contents, with minor spotting to the margins, are otherwise clean and without inscriptions or stamps. Complete with the rubbed and nicked dustwrapper, which has a long closed tear to the upper edge of the front panel and chips with loss at the head of the spine and bottom edge of the rear panel. Not price-clipped (8/6 net to the lower front flap).
A 'hard, fast, exciting spy story' set on a yaucht sailing between Miami and the Bahamas during WW2. (Hubin).
