Published by Pantheon Books, New York, 1965. Hardcover in Dust Jacket. Written by Paul Berna. Translated from the French by John Buchanan-Brown. Illustrated by Prudence Seward. First American Edition ('First Pantheon Books Edition') This book was originally published in France. This copy is unique by virtue of it being, as far as I can see, the Only non-library copy for sale. The age recommendation on the book is 10-14, but I could see older teenagers enjoying it as well. At the bottom of the dust jacket flap is printed the date 9/65, so you know that both the book and jacket are of the First American edition. 'With this spell-binding novel, as convincing as it is entertaining, French author Paul Berna once again proves that he has few peers among writers of detective fiction for young readers.'
