To Kill A King
Robert Hale, London, 1965. First Edition, Hardcover. Very Good Condition/Very Good. FIRST EDITION COMPLETE WITH DUST JACKET. Bruce Allsopp, known for his books on architecture. 'The setting for this dramatic novel is France of the Sixth Century, a country racked with civil war. The three sons of Lothar I had divided the land and it was obvious that peace would not return until there was a single King. But, who should stolid soldier Sigibert or perhaps the cunning and powerful Guntru, friend of the bishops? This was not an issue to be solved only by the means of men. The answer lay within the hands of two women: the beautiful Fredegund, one time mistress discarded Queen of King Chilperic, a pagan priestess and sorceress and probably the cleverest woman of her age; and high-born Brunhild, the wife of Sigibert. This is the powerful and graphic story of the deadly duel between these two women, a duel that would decide the destiny of a nation.’ Book - in Very Good maroon boards with silver lettering - slight bumping to the bottom right hand corner of the front board and slight bumping to the extreme ends of the spine.

AXTON [D.R.KOONTZ], DAVID
Prison Of Ice
W H Allen, UK, 1976. First Edition, Hardcover (Original Cloth). Fine/Very Good. ‘This is the stuff of which nightmares are made ... a thriller supercharged with excitement. The crisis : a world-wide drought. The possible solution : giant chunks of Arctic ice, split from the pack by high explosives and towed to northern ports to be melted for water. An international group of eight scientists have planted sixty powerful bombs deep in Arctic ice to study the effects of the explosions. But before they can withdraw to safety, a shattering tidal wave breaks the ice on which they are working away from the main mass, setting it drift. Cut off from rescue by fierce storms, threatened by cold, by hunger, and by a homicidal maniac in their midst, the scientists count the minutes until midnight when the bombs will detonate and their prison of ice will become a frozen coffin. Help, when it does arrive, comes from a surprising quarter : the commander of a Russian spy submarine. But help is not rescue, and the outcome is in doubt until the last second ticks off the bombs' detonator in a novel that pits man against man, against time, and against the unforgiving elements.’ Book - [SEE SCAN] - in Fine [much better than Very Good] bright blue boards with gilt lettering. Contents, a very small minor mark to the rear paste down otherwise clean, bright and tightly bound.

 BARNARD, ROBERT, Death Of An Old Goat
BARNARD, ROBERT
Death Of An Old Goat
Collins Crime Club, U.K. 1974. First Edition, Hardcover. Fine/Very Good. ‘All universities are subject to the hazard of being sent up in no uncertain fashion by past or present alumni, or even teachers, and it is high time Australian universities took a turn. And where better to start than with the University of Drummondale, situated somewhere between Sydney and Brisbane, and unenthusiastically preparing to welcome a Distinguished Guest? Drummondale was not one of Australia's most distinguished seats of learning, but then Professor Belville-Smith was hardly one of England's most distinguished exports. Nevertheless, he came, he saw, he lectured (on Mrs Gaskell and Jane Austen) — and within a few hours was found violently and mysteriously dead. Who could have reason to kill the new arrival? Inspector Royle reluctantly accepted that he must find out, or at least go through the motions, and that this was one case in which the palm-greasing to which he was accustomed was unlikely to occur. In a short time Belville-Smith had met an astonishing number of people, thanks to his attendance at a party where the University English Department and representatives of the local grazing community had fraternized uneasily. So far as the academics were concerned, Royle was out of his element — until Fate presented him with an aide. So far as the grazing community was concerned, he was out of his depth, though he tiptoed heavily among them; it was not for a good cop to investigate the rich and influential — unless they were up to something very odd indeed. Robert Barnard's first novel is a hilarious send-up of university life 'down under', and undoubtedly owes something to the six years he spent at an Australian university, which he says bears a passing resemblance to Drummondale though the staff are completely distinct. He evidently found it a rewarding experience — not least because it brought him an Australian wife.’ Book - [SEE SCAN] - in Fine [much better than Very Good] bright red boards with gilt lettering - light bumping to the extreme bottom of the spine. Contents, faint speckling to the extreme page edges.
