Publication: Peter Davies, 1976, London
First edition. Author's second of two books using this pseudonym and his sixth novel. Fine in dust jacket. Set in Santa Margherita on the Italian Riviera we find luxury boat salesman Max Farne back at the seaside village where he fought with the Resistance decades before in World War II. 20th Century Crime & Mystery Writers says, "Written in simple pastoral style with an integral sense of place, the Max Forne books are to the Italian seacoast what Gavin Black's splendid thrillers are to the Far East." An elusive title.
