The book has yellow boards and blue lettering. The boards have some grubby marks inevitable due to the lack of a dust jacket. Internally there are no marks other than a neat owners inscription to the front end paper and some very light foxing. The pages are very slightly yellowing but with no other marks, have no tears or creases, and the binding is tight with some light rubbing to the spine ends.

Overall a good copy of a novel by a popular author.

The book is not an ex library book, it has no remainder marks or publisher's stamps.
