---------trade paperback, Near Fine, unread, no hardcover edition, this is the true 1st edition, another Special X thriller mystery, the rarest of all the Michael Slade books. ----- When Penguin started the print run for this, they did not realize that there was a major error in their production. 12 full pages of text were duplicated within the book. Nothing was omitted from the book, just duplicated. The promotional tour for this book had just started when the error was discovered. Penguin decided to recall and pulp all of the flawed copies and rather than correcting the error, they simply went to a 2nd printing, quickly ----- The majority of the copies of the Canadian edition, which is the true 1st edition, are 2nd printings-----it is reported that only about 100 copies of the erroneous first escaped being pulped., any image directly beside this listing is the actual book and not a generic photo
