Detailed Product Description
New York, Crown, 1972, 1st edition. 316 pp. Hardcover with dust jacket. Fine condition.

[Neate X379] This is the novel the movie was based on. First published in 1972, it's considered to be one of the best climbing books ever written. Art professor Jonathan Hemlock lives in a renovated Gothic church on Long Island. He's also a mountain climber and a mercenary, performing assassinations (i.e., sanctions) for money to augment his black-market art collection. Now Hemlock is being tricked into a hazardous assignment that involves an attempt to scale one of the most treacherous mountain peaks in the Swiss Alps.
 
In a breathtakingly suspenseful story that is part thriller and part satire, the author traces Hemlock's spine-tingling adventures, introducing a cast of intriguing characters - villains, traitors, beautiful women -into the highly charged atmosphere of danger. The accumulating threads of suspicion, accusation, and evidence gradually knit themselves into a bizarre and death-defying climax in this exciting novel that will keep readers on the edge of their seats until the last absorbing page.
