London: Hodder and Stoughton, 1997. [Spy thriller] FIRST EDITION. Octavo (24 x 16cm), pp.213. With SIGNED bookplate. The standard hardcover edition, with cover photo of Pierce Brosnan as James Bond and only Bruce Fierstein listed as scriptwriter (a rare variant exists with four writers credited). Published simultaneously with the mass-market softcover. A moderately used example. Page edges a little tanned, two labels or stamps neatly and discreetly removed from half title, jacket is fine. Possibly a former library copy but not obvious and lightly used if so. Presents well. An affordable copy of the rarest Benson Bond. Item #63853
