Comments & Further Information

This is a first printing of the Penguin edition which is in good condition for its age.  The title was first published by Gollancz in 1967.   Although tanned, the book remains eminently readable and is tightly bound in lightly creased, complete covers which are rather grubby and yellowed. Numerous chips to the spine.

SYNOPSIS:  “Had Sammy, on the towering ledge, been tempted by death… the last best friend? Sam Weiss, former inmate of Dachau, London connoisseur and dealer, had suffered from vertigo. But could that account for his crashing from the tenth storey of a Paddington block? Ned Balfour must know the truth.

Sophisticated, more used to handling manuscripts and autograph letters than lantern-jawed thugs, Ned is obliged to unmask several respectable faces as he pushes his way into a world of art where force counts more than finesse.
Until he too measures up to the last best friend.”
