Some Put Their Trust in Chariots - Anthony GreyLondon: Michael Joseph, 1973, Hardback in Dust Wrapper.
Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. A little rubbing to the edges of the dust wrapper with a small nick to the top corner of the lower panel.
From the cover: “Every year three tax-dodging multi-millionaires hold a vital business meeting in an aeroplane flying in ‘no-man’s-land’ high above the Atlantic. Secrecy is the only protection for their enormous wealth. But this is blown when Western intelligence men, for their own devious ends, betray them to money-hungry Communist agents.
From then on the millionaires are caught fast in the cross-fire of a new secret East-West war being fought out behind recurring headlines announcing new financial crises threatening the Western world.
Their one ally in this war of hostage-taking and hi-jacking is a tough, unsympathetic newsman whose arrogant cynicism barely hides an inner struggle between cowardice and greed — and a hankering for the haughty, beautiful daughter of one millionaire.
The story moves fast. From the dank German bunkers that still stand on the Channel Island of Jersey to Avignon, where it erupts in a midnight battle on that city’s famous bridge. The ingenious, breath-taking climax of Anthony Grey’s first suspense novel is reached with the unleashing of a new ‘secret weapon’ ten thousand feet high in the sky.”
