Comments & Further Information

This is a US edition paperback not in the best of conditions and is definitely showing its age.  This is an 8th printing of the 1974 Bantam Books edition.

Heavy age tanning to pages making them very brown but still eminently readable.  There is the residue of a sticker on the first page. The covers are very grubby and showing signs of wear and there are reading creases to spine and some fading.

SYNOPSIS:  “The time: The 1970s, Police State, USA.  The all-powerful secret government agency wanted Dr Hellstrom’s Project 40.  But it also knew that Hellstrom was dangerous.  Any move to investigate his hidden farm must be very carefully made.
