1 Ambler, Eric THE LIGHT OF DAY
William Heinemann 1962 0434019712 / 9780434019717 First Edition Hardcover Very Good+ in Good dust jacket 
Heinemann 1962 First Edition. HC/DJ - very good/good minus. Hardcover is clean and intact, with with no markings, a little fading and bumping to spine to spine ends. Good minus jacket is age tanned, with light soiling and several edge tears and chips, edge rubbing. . ; 8vo; "The Light of Day was the basis for Jules Dassin’s classic film, Topkapi. When Arthur Abdel Simpson first spots Harper in the Athens airport, he recognizes him as a tourist unfamiliar with city and in need of a private driver. In other words, the perfect mark for Simpson’s brand of entrepreneurship. But Harper proves to be more the spider than the fly when he catches Simpson riffling his wallet for traveler’s checks. Soon Simpson finds himself blackmailed into driving a suspicious car across the Turkish border. Then, when he is caught again, this time by the police, he faces a choice: cooperate with the Turks and spy on his erstwhile colleagues or end up in one of Turkey’s notorious prisons..." [354-not]

2 AMBLER, Eric THE MASK OF DIMITRIOS
Fontana 1978 First Edition Softcover Very Good 
Fontana 1978 edition, ISBN: 0006142060. Pages are clean and unmarked, fairly heavy age tanning to pages and covers. One split at spine but no loose pages. Cover has light creasing and light edgewear, light soiling bottom edge of pages. ; 12mo 7" - 7˝" tall; Review: "....The Mask of Dimitrios is a sombre romp through England, Istanbul and most of the Levant, coming full circle in that city created for novelists, Paris. Dimitrios is a master spy but his adversary and pursuer, bored Oxford don and crime writer Latimer's investigations bring to light the creation and perfection of Dimitrios. It is the career of Dimitrios which forms the core of the book, closing with an eerily silent, bloody coda. What is so remarkable about that book is that every character is one we would want to meet sometime in a humdrum life, every locale the perfect antithesis of the cloistered, the mundane and the routine. It is everyman's fantasized adventure remarkably executed by everyman, the bookish, inwardly challenged, cynical Mr. Latimer...." [135-osl]
