SIGNED by Richard Neville on the title page.

Originally commissioned as a quickie-biography of Charles Sobhraj, a serial killer who preyed upon Western backpackers on the hippie trail through Southeast Asia, the book subsequently turned into a nightmare assignment for Neville and his co-author and wife, Julie Clarke, taking over two years to complete, though it did eventually become a bestseller. After years behind bars, first in India and then in Kathmandu’s largest prison, Sobhraj was released and deported to France in December 2022.

Reading crease to spine; page edges tanned, o/w Very Good.
