Drink To Yesterday.

by Manning. Coles

Publication: Bantam Books, 1947, New York

First paperback edition. Bantam Book 76. Fine, unread copy in pictorial wrappers. Michael Kingston had a gift for languages, and at 17 enlisted and was drafted into the secret service, under Hambledon. They engineered the murder of a scientist breeding cholera germs, the arson of a Zepp plant, and the murder of Bodenheim. The death of Hambledon and of a German girl brought the wheel of murder full circle, and Kingston found himself haunted by blue devils when the Armistice came, unable to come to grips with himself or life. Splendid espionage novel of World War II.
