. Fine in a Very Good dustjacket. Blue boards quarterbound in purple cloth. The spine is stamped in silver. Octavo. 277pps. Stated First printing. A very nice, collector's-quality copy: clean, tight, square, and bright. The textblock is immaculate; no apparent reading wear and no previous ownership markings. The price-clipped dustjacket, glossy in a new mylar sleeve, has a touch of crinkling at the head of the spine, a small, closed tear at the bottom of the rear panel, and a crease in the rear flap. SIGNED, dated in the year of publication, and inscribed by the author to the original owners on the title-page.
"...The narrator is Robert Halliday, an American ghostwriter with good reason to dislike both the CIA and the Iraqis. He is blackmailed by Zander, a shadowy international middleman, into helping broker a delicate negotiation between NATO and the 'Ruler,' a Persian Gulf sheik of great power and questionable sanity. But if time is running out for the 'Ruler,' is is also taking care of Zander, who, as the novel unfolds, turns out to have more than one interest at stake..."
