An unusually good set of the first quartet of Deighton's Harry Palmer novels, extremely uncommon to find all in first edition, first printing, here with the original, blank crossword puzzle in Horse Under Water as called for. Michael Caine would famously star in three adaptations of these novels. Deighton's Harry Palmer was on many levels an antidote to, or counterpoint for, Fleming's James Bond.
