Destination Unknown by Agatha Christie, 1st / 1st, 1954
London: Collins Crime Club, (1954).
First edition. This is a near fine copy. The plainly titled dust wrapper is bright and clean. There are slight areas of fading and, on the spine, very slight soling present. It has not been price clipped. The boards are free from foxing and are, consequently, bright, and white. Overall, this is a near fine copy. The novel opens in Morocco, where Hilary Craven is staying after a failed marriage. She plans to commit suicide but is instead recruited by the British secret service for a mission. She is asked to impersonate the wife of a nuclear scientist who has recently disappeared. Hilary is soon transported to meet her new ‘husband’.
