About This Item

UK,slim 12mo p/back Original,1st edn.[Paperback original denotes the first format and its first appearance in print of the book/title.Paperbacks usually follow on from the HB edn,but can be published at the same time as the HB edn,but p/back originals are published prior to any other format.Stated 'A STAR Original' and also states 'Previously published as FIREFLASH 5.' Different colour illustration design to previous publication of this title.] VG-.No owner inscrptn and no price removal to cover. Bright,clean,reasonably sharp-cornered.glossy, colour photographic illustrated front cover with red+white lettering, similar coloured lettering to black spine - which appears to have NO reading creases but several laminate production(?) horizontal wrinkles, rear cover with red+white lettering to black background; with negligible shelf-wear,bumping,rubbing and creasing to edges and corners - no nicks,tears or splits.Front cover with a vertical laminate wrinkle/crease leaving identical crease impressions to concomitant pages within, approx. up to about chapter 6,(pp117/18) of Pt2,but in a diminishing degree.All edges aged/toned to varying lighter degrees from top to lower edges,across the lower edges a partial saw-cut - a remainder indicator(?); contents bright,tight,clean with virtually no page-edge toning noticeable - no dog-ear reading creases to any pages either - appears unread,apart from my own collation.UK,slim 12mo p/back Original,1st edn9-223pp [paginated] includes Pts 1+2 comprising 5 chapters each; plus [unpaginated] half-title with story prose extract,title page,a dedication,Pts separator pages and to the rear,2pp publisher's advert.Described hard but fairly and honestly - nowhere as detrimental as it may read - still an acceptable example.Title appears o be quite scarce too!
Eerie and unearthly,it glistened like a flying saucer,the orange rumbling flame from its tail pipe blazing hotter and fiercer,until it formed a stiff screaming lance of flame behind.
This was the lethal successor to the vehicle which killed Bradley Winger in his attempt to break the land speed record and realise his lifetime obsession.With his death he left the legacy of his failure, vindicable only by his son Clay,driving the newer,deadlier model Fireflash 5.But someone somewhere harboured very different ideas - ideas of fulfilling a personal vendetta that would bring savage retribution on one man's family,thanks to an unmentionable sequence of events buried deep in his mysterious past.
