Special Attributes:

1st Edition

Title: A Life for a Death 

Author: John Creasey as Gordon Ashe 

Publisher: John Long.

Edition: 1st edn 1973

Description: Hardback in original chipped and price clipped dust jacket, now protected in a removable plastic cover.  Please see photograph. Some staining to page edges, not affecting book internally, small ink inscription inside front cover, and what looks like a removed bookplate residue on front fly. Some spine lean. Having said all that, book is tight and clean internally, and is considered good for its age. 

Blurb: This Patrick Dawlish novel, with its ingenious, fast-action plot, shows John Creasey at his best and demonstrates once again why he has held his place as a best-selling crime-writer for so long in so many languages…


I have finally convinced my father that you can have too many books! He has travelled the whole of the UK for 40 years visiting second hand bookshops and accumulating a large collection, featuring a lot of crime and science fiction, which he has now agreed to slim down, so this represents an opportunity to aquire some potential treasures at realistic prices.

We will endevour to describe each book honestly and carefully and any obvious faults will be listed in the description. However, please bear in mind the age of the book which accordingly may have minor unlisted faults reasonable for its age.

We pack our books carefully to ensure that they arrive in the condition they left us. We do ask that upon receipt you leave appropriate feedback if happy with your book, as this tells us that it has arrived safely. We will then reciprocate with feedback to complete the transaction. If however, for any reason you are unhappy with the book, please contact us immediately as we do offer a no-quibble returns policy.


We accept PayPal worldwide. Please ask for international postage rate if intending to buy from outside of the UK.
