As an NT-er I'm wondering how much of a bargain that was? Of course anything by WG , especially a first edition! - is a bargain smile

Whilst visiting Attingham Park, a beautiful 18thC mansion near Shrewsbury, now run by the NT, a week ago, I was lucky to find a first edition copy of Greek Fire in their second hand bookshop, complete with original flyleaf and advertising an original 'Popular Book Club' price of 4s/3p.

Will post a review when I've managed to get time to read it.

20. Greek Fire - 1957.

"From first page to last "Greek Fire" has suspense and excitement plus brilliant and subtle writing." - The Star.

* * * *

" A Greek girl rises like a star from a murky background of intrigue and gangster politics in Athens, the mistress of a smooth politician with a dangerous past. An American who has adopted Greece as the country of his spirit sets himself the task of exposing the political adventurer and whilst a dangerous mission its prize is the love of the girl Anya."
