Information
First UK edition, first print hardback of TWELVE SECONDS TO LIVE by Douglas Reeman and published by William Heinemann, London in 2002. Signed by Reeman on the title page. Full numberline 1 3 5 7 9 10 8 6 4 2 on the copyright page.

The book is in very good condition (Clean black cloth boards with gold lettering on the spine) with some minor wear to the dust jacket, which is not price clipped (light creasing to edges, couple of chips to corners and bottom spine ridge). Internally, the pages are clean and tight and there are no tears and no other inscriptions. There is some tanning to page edges.

The mine is an impartial killer and a lethal challenge to any volunteer in the Special Countermeasures of the Royal Navy.

They are brave, lonely men with something to prove or nothing left to lose. Lieutenant-Commander David Masters, haunted by a split second glimpse of the mine that destroyed his first and only command, H.M. Submarine Tornado, now diffuses 'the beast' on land and teaches the same to others who too often die in the attempt.

Lieutenant Chris Foley, minelaying off an enemy coast in ML366, rolls on an uneasy sea with a release bracket sheared and a live mine jammed, and hears the menacing growl of approaching E-boats.

And Sub-Lieutenant Michael Lincoln, hailed as a hero, dreads exposure as a coward even more than the unexpected booby-trap, or the gentle whirr of the activated fuse marking possibly the last twelve seconds of his life.

310 pages.
