Hardcover with Dust Jacket in good condition.
Dust jacket is tanned with a few stains; general wear and some chipped edges. Some foxing to panels but fully in tact and housed in a protective mylar jacket.
Book itself is very good. Immaculate cover with leatherette spine; reads good as new with some tanning and a hint of foxing to exterior text block. Perfect vintage reading copy!
First, a man and a woman are subjects of a top-secret government experiment designed to produce extraordinary psychic powers. Then, they are married and have a child. A daughter. Early on the daughter shows signs of a wild and horrifying force growing within her. Desperately, her parents try to train her to keep that force in check, to "act normal." Now the government wants its brainchild back - for its own insane ends.
