Uneasy Terms [RARE SIGNED COPY]

£50.00

Product description

This, the 25th title by this prolific thriller writer, brings Slim Callaghan into yet another strange set-up, with an intricate and pacy plot which keeps the reader turning the pages with increasing excitement.

Reginald Evelyn Peter Southouse Cheyney (1896–1951), known as Peter Cheyney, was a British crime fiction writer who flourished between 1936 and 1951, and best known for his short stories and novels about agent/detective Lemmy Caution. Less well-known, but nonetheless a regular hero, was Slim Callaghan - special for being a British (i.e. non-American) sleuth.

Our copy is in generally good condition, retaining its illustrated dust jacket (unclipped), which itself shows wear consistent with its age, but is generally in good condition - worn at corners and particularly on the spine, with some small areas of loss. The book itself is bound in pale creamy cloth with a little browning to the spine and a stain at the bottom R/H front corner, but otherwise few signs of age or wear. Title etc in plain dark letters on the spine. Inside, the binding is generally firm with no loose pages; pages very lightly tanned; previous owner's name (dated 1975) on front fep in biro. All pages clean and bright. Author's idiosyncratic signature in light-blue ink on halftitle page.
