By Robert Lindsey. Christopher John Boyce and Andrew Daulton Lee are the titular Falcon and Snowman, as seen in the movie by the same name starring Timothy Hutton and Sean Penn. The book's about 20% too long but Lindsey's prose is right down the fairway for its era: strained at times, but you get a real picture of Cold War anxieties. (And of sought-after blurbers. Does anyone read Ken Follett anymore? But he was king of the thrillers back then.)

The jacket is a bit banged up -- a couple of nicks, a small tear at the top left, another at the center bottom of the back, a bump at the bottom right, general edgewear and toning. But it's still quite nice inside, except for the previous owner's bookplate on the inside cover; some little foxing/stains on the page edges, but clean inside, no dog-ears. A solid reading copy.
