Horler, Sydney. False Face.
London: Nelson, .
Nelson 3/- novels series. 279pp. Publisher’s red cloth titled in gilt to spine, minor bumping and a trifle dusty, a very good copy in a bright and rather delightful dustwrapper, a trifle worn and creased around the edges, some chipping to the spine ends, sharp and clean. Internally clean. One doesn’t see Nelson’s in dustwrappers often enough, charming little books. Horler might not have been terribly charming, but this is a very nice example of a reprint of one of his Sir Brian Fordinghame stories (the first, in fact), in which Department YI of British Intelligence infiltrates all manner of shady foreign infiltration.
