New York, Harcourt Brace, 1951..

But why is National Sound Inc. claiming to own Mikki?  What did Ellen's brother, who died the same night as her father, know about Mikki? What secrets contained in her memory banks are so important?  The follow-up to The Big Clock. Near fine in NF dust jacket with just a bit of spotting and pencil marks to the rear panel.  A real beauty and an early technological thriller! $75.00.
