Comments & Further Information

First UK edition hardback in very good condition for its age.  Tanning to pages making them very brown but still eminently readable.  Bump to base of book spine.  The dust jacket is complete and still shows the price.  There are some slight signs of wear at the extremities.

From the author of The Killing Fields.

SYNOPSIS:  “Guy Tancred, clever and urbane, something of a social butterfly, has nothing in common with his taciturn elder brother Harry, a rubber planter in Ceylon. Sent out there by his company in the winter of 1941 to oversee rubber production, Guy expects to find himself marooned in a boring backwater. He does not expect to fall in love with his brother’s beautiful restless wife, or to find himself sucked into secret intelligence operations as the Japanese gather their forces and attack Ceylon in what Winston Chruchill is later to describe as the most dangerous moment of the war…”
