"The time is that golden summer of 1914, a summer remembered for its glorious sunny days that seemed to roll endlessly forward until the guns of August changed the world forever. The place is the small French Basque village of Salies." "Rodney William Whitaker (June 12, 1931 – Dec 14, 2005) was an American film scholar and writer who wrote several successful novels under the pen name Trevanian. Whitaker wrote in a wide variety of genres, achieved best-seller status, and published under several other names as well, including Nicholas Seare, Beñat Le Cagot and Edoard Moran. He published the non-fiction The Language of Film under his own name. Between 1972 and 1983, five of his novels sold more than a million copies each. He was described as "the only writer of airport paperbacks to be compared to Zola, Ian Fleming, Poe and Chaucer." Whitaker adamantly avoided publicity for most of his life. His real name was a closely held secret until 1998, when a reporter for the Austin American-Statesman published it.". Very Good+ in Very Good+ dust jacket .
