Ambler, Eric - Doctor Frigo

New York, Atheneum, 1974. First US edition. Dr. Frigo (colloquialism for 'frozen meat') is a pseudonym for Ernesto Castillo, a doctor on an island in the French Antilles. His father, deeply involved in the politics of a Central American state, was either assassinated or martyred. Does the doctor himself have revenge fantasies or political ambitions? Some spotting to boards, spine faded. DJ shows slight creasing to front flap and light wear to spine ends. $15.00.
