About this Item

Signed by author on title page. There was nothing secondhand about this: Freddie Urban Noon broke into a cancer research lab--where two scientists were getting paid big money by the American Tobacco Research Institute to prove that smoking is good for you. By the end of the night the researchers, the Institute, and Freddie himself were in a whole lot of trouble. Freddie Urban Noon was still a burglar, a liar, and a gentleman; but now he had one more claim to fame: He was an invisible man. Suddenly, everyone wants to get a glimpse of Freddie: good guys, bad guys, even Freddie's girlfriend, Peg, who is getting tired of making love to someone she can't see. But Freddie doesn't dare show his face, his shadow, or even so much as his underwear. Because Freddie Noon has gotten a taste of invisibility--and he can't quit now. As new, unread, in fine, mylar-protected dust jacket. {Not remainder-marked or price-cliped} M18. Bookseller Inventory # 7039
