Synopsis: Buried deep within the consciousness of Sergeant Raymond Shaw is the mechanism of an assassin-a time bomb ticking toward explosion, controlled by the delicate skill of its Communist masters. Shaw returns from the Korean War to an idolizing and unsuspecting country. In a farcical, uproarious scene, he is greeted amid flashbulbs and frock coats by his power-hungry, domineering mother and her politician husband, who have decided to use Shaw's fame to further their own unscrupulous ambitions.

Review: Richard Condon's 1959 Cold War thriller remains just as chilling today. It's the story of Sgt. Raymond Shaw, an ex-prisoner of war (and winner of the Congressional Medal of Honor) who, brainwashed with the rest of his unit by a Chinese psychological expert during his captivity in North Korea, has come home programmed to kill. His primary target is a U.S. presidential nominee. Made into a controversial 1962 movie with Laurence Harvey, Frank Sinatra, and Angela Lansbury.

Book Description McGraw-Hill Book Company, Inc., 1959. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good with no dust jacket. First Edition. 0 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 311 pages; Dedicated and signed very boldly in black marker inside front cover, "For Betty Adams with every best wish and many thanks, Richard Condon" light bleed through to opposing half title page. Book bright and clean, straight and sharp. It plainly states McGraw Hill 1959 with FIRST EDITION on copyright page. Clearly it is not with speckled covers as one would expect however. I see no indication of a Book Club edition. In addition I was only able to find paperback book club printings. ; Signed by Author. Bookseller Inventory # 33270
