Reginald Hill writing as Dick Morland. A very bright UK first edition, first impression.
Wrapper: The wrapper on this copy is clean, bright, unfaded and complete. It is unclipped. It shows a trivial hint of insignificant bruising at the lower edge of the front panel - unnoticeable. Looks very sharp.
Book: The book is square and very tight. There are no previous ownership inscriptions. The boards are clean and unfaded, the corners sharp. The pages are very clean. The closed page edges are unmarked. No foxing. No dog-eared pages. The binding is tight - no cracked hinges. A handsome copy in a protected wrapper.
