Descripción

This is a true US first edition / first printing, with the words 'Published by Alfred A Knopf.inc in 1975' on the copyright page. A Near-Fine copy of this thrilling novel, by the blockbusting author of 'Jurassic Park'. The jacket is nestly price-clipped. There is some slight fading to the jacket spine (hardly noticeable). Otherwise, very nice. We protect all our books with a removable plastic cover, and send them with care. N° de ref. de la librería 000807

Sinopsis:

"A nineteenth-century version of THE STING...Crichton fascinates us."
THE NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW
In teeming Victorian London, where lavish wealth and appalling poverty live side by side, Edward Pierce charms the most prominent of the well-to-do as he cunningly orchestrates the crime of the century. Who would suspect that a gentleman of breeding could mastermind the daring theft of a fortune in gold? Who could predict the consequences of making the extraordinary robbery aboard the pride of England's industrial era, the mighty steam locomotive? Based on fact, as lively as legend, and studded with all the suspense and style of a modern fiction master, here is a classic caper novel set a decade before the age of dynamite--yet nonetheless explosive....
