Vanishing Point - Victor CanningLondon: Heinemann, 1982, Hardback in Dust Wrapper.
Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Price Clipped.
From the cover: “Maurice Crillon — a brilliant French artist and art forger with a silver tongue and a silken touch with women — learns at his mother’s death that his father was an English baronet. His curiosity to meet his parent entangles him in an adventure in which he unwittingly becomes the quarry for the security services of two nations as well as agents of the Mafia, all of them bent on recovering certain incriminating documents which have fallen into his possession.
Vanishing Point is a typically sophisticated Canning work, full of charm, excitement and romance, played out against English, Italian and Swiss backgrounds with a gallery of characters that will linger long in the memory.”
