About this Item

"Guyer, the hero of Alan Furst's new novel, in one of the 800-odd CIA officers who were dismissed in a single day in June 1977. Together with a former colleague, he sets up a business in New York in the only trade he knows: clandestine operations. SHADOW TRADE is as novel about the dark, ruthless politics of the private intelligence agencies. It deals with the details of their trade: computers, mail drops, anonymous fund transfers, honey traps and, above all, duplicity. An endless series of falsifications gradually takes agents so far into the shadows of their own world that they lose their hold on reality and vanish from sight. A complex, but tightly knit and wholly absorbing novel which takes Alan Furst high into the ranks of serious thriller writers." This book has 214 pages. The book is in ABSOLUTE PRISTINE condition. The dust jacket is NOT price clipped {L7.95}. The jacket shows only minimal wear/rubbing, with the corners showing just the slightest of rubbing. A solid FINE copy in FINE dust jacket of this VERY SCARCE FIRST BRITISH EDITION. Bookseller Inventory # 033646
