by Elizabeth Peters

Condition: Fine/Near Fine


Nice First Edition hardcover, pages are clean, crisp, binding tight, red stain top edge. Cover boards fine, in near fine dust jacket, light rubbing along corners. An excellent copy.

--It was the start of a grand adventure in a land of antiquity, a rare opportunity to visit biblical places shrouded in mystery. But in a Jerusalem hotel room a world away from everything she knows, Dinah van der Lyn hears angry voices through the wall, followed by a crash and a brief cry in English help. The brutal shattering of an evening's stillness becomes a prelude to terror.
