POSSESSION. Garden City: Printed for the Crime Club by Doubleday & Company, Inc., 1976. Octavo, boards. First edition. Dark suspense thriller. "POSSESSION contains a weird cult, an unethical scientist, and a rich old man who wishes to take over the body of a healthy young person. L. P. Davies can surely be considered the master of the suspenseful identity crisis -- one character after another must confront reality (or apparent reality) with a disordered perception. The author is proficient at sketching English villages and rural scenes for background, and adroitly constructs thrillers which are unusual and entertaining." - Mary Helen Becker, John M. Reilly, ed., Twentieth-Century Crime and Mystery Writers, first edition (1980), p. 438. A fine copy in very good or better dust jacket with light wear at upper corners of front flap and short tear at upper edge of rear panel. (#161706).
