The Destruction Committee

£34.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

Harrap, London, 1971. Hardcover. Book Condition: Good. DJ condition: Good. First Edition. DJ is slightly scuffed at edges and the spine has browned. Binding is solid. Pages clean and bright. Light dust-soiling to top edge. Not price clipped. No inscriptions.

They call themselves The Destruction Committee - six Vietnam War veterans, graduates of the toughest kind of guerilla training. Every month they meet to select a target for assassination. The candidate for death must be socially undesirable, have no dependent relatives, and provide the team with the challenges necessary to mantain the same razor-sharp efficiency in killing which the army has taught them,

In the America in which they live - the America of the near future - is in political turmoil. A presidential election is at hand and the leading candidate is incurably ill. His running mate shows dangerous left-wing leanings, and so, having rid society of some of its most notorious members, the Destruction Committee turns its professionalism to its most ambitious target yet.
