First U.S. edition. Fine in dust jacket with creasing to the rear flapfold. The scene is the Transatlantic district of London...Grosvenor Square, site of the U.S. Embassy, where tourists flock to the park dedicated to the Four Freedoms. A killer is surrounded in Shelley's Hotel with two hostages; his demands escalate as time passes. What is his real motive? The answer to that is only one of a series of jolting surprises as the story follows the cat-and-mouse game between the police and the killer.
