A hardcover first edition, 1962 of Aloastair MacLean's The Golden Rendezvous, Published by Collins UK.
Not ex library, there is a brief inked name on front endpaper, otherwise very good, solid in binding.
The dustjacket shows period inner tape repiar to the base of the spine, otherwise fair. Edgeworn and bumps to corners.
A timeless classic of modern-day piracy from the acclaimed master of action and suspense.
Aboard the SS Campari, all is not well.
For Johnny Carter, the Chief Officer, the voyage has already begun badly; but it's only when the Campari sails that evening, after a succession of delays that he realises something is seriously wrong.
A member of the crew is suddenly missing and the stern-to-stern search only serves to increase tension. Then violence erupts and suddenly the whole ship is in danger. Is the Campari a victim of modern day piracy? And what of the strange cargo hidden below the decks?
