Powell, John S. . THE NOSTRADAMUS PROPHECY. Berlington, NC: Bella Donna Press, 1998. Hardcover. First Edition/First Printing. 254 pages. As New/As New.

The author's breakthrough espionage novel. The first title in a projected trilogy. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. "Just about everything goes wrong for the good guys in this thriller of nuclear warfare. As five nuclear warheads stolen from Russia menace the United States, a group of CIA operatives and assorted helpers, including Israeli agent Tovi Hersch and ex-CIA counter-terrorism agent Laurence Clarke, race against time to locate and destroy the rogue weapons. They are too late to save Southern Manhattan, however, and the debacle fulfills Nostradamus' prophecy that a Great New City would be destroyed by a nuclear explosion at the end of the millennium. By climax time, the mountains of North Carolina are swarming with agents, counteragents, spies, politicians, and weapons of various lethalities" (Publisher's blurb). An intelligent thriller, LeCarre-meets-Tom Clancy. A "must-have" title for John S. Powell collectors. This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed in black marker on the front free endpaper by John S. Powell. This title has been out-of-print as a hardcover for a long time even though it went into subsequent printing. This is one of very few signed copies of the First Hardcover Edition still available online and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. A scarce signed copy thus. One of the most brilliant living American novelists of the espionage genre. A flawless copy. (SEE ALSO JOHN LE CARRE TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 0966192257. $40.00
