8vo. Original red cloth, lettered black to spine, with pictorial dust wrapper; pp. 256; a very good copy with a few minor nicks near the spine, past owner inscription to front free endpaper.
First edition., first issue. The title is taken from Revelation 6:8, where a pale horse is described, with Death as its rider. The novel features a confession which is, quite literally, taken to the grave, a murder in the fog, and a strong undertone of black magic. A book increasingly in demand since a 2020 BBC adaptation for TV.
