A marvelous, unread first UK edition in Fine/Fine condition, SIGNED by the author, Brian Moore, directly onto the title page of the book.

Moore's novel dramatizes the narrow escapes and glaring self-deceptions of a 70-year-old Catholic Frenchman, Pierre Brossard, who is being newly pursued for his participation, while a member of the Vichy-affiliated Milici during World War II, in the execution of Jews. Brossard was officially pardoned in 1971 by the French president, but soon afterwards he was condemned internationally for "crimes against humanity. " He has remained a fugitive ever since, receiving asylum at various sympathetic Catholic monasteries and abbeys in France.
