Humpty Majority Sat on the Wall by Percy W. Chattey

Humpty Majority Sat on the Wall by Percy W. Chattey hits the £1 shelf in my shop.

New Horizon, 1983, Hardback in dust wrapper.

Signed, with a dedication, by the author on the first blank unverified and reflected as such in the lack of premium.

From the cover: Colin Sheer-Wood, a greedy selfish man, pushing his way through life, his empire built from nothing is vast and powerful. At a time when he is fraudulently over-valuing his Companys books for further gain, his Industries are threatened with Nationalisation by a left wing Labour administration with a tiny majority of only three. If the proposals go through it will ruin him.

In a desperate bid to retain his position, he hires a professional assassination team to murder three Members of Parliament whose majority at the polls were very small. With the Governments popularity at its lowest ebb, he is gambling that at the resulting by-elections the Government will be destroyed along with the proposals that would ruin him.

He is horrified to discover that his eldest daughter is courting one of the M. P. s and intends to marry him. But he has no way of being able to contact the assassins to remove his future son-in-laws name from their list.

Very Good in Very Good Dust Wrapper. A little rubbing to the edges of the dust wrapper. Leans slightly.

Black boards with Gilt titling to the Spine.
220 pages. 8¼” x 5¼”.

  1. Derek Cook says:

    So pleased to see this original book by Percy Chattey. He would be really grateful if you could mention him, the author of this book please? Percy, who continues to write as an expat’ in Spain still has the original manuscript for this book, as recently found by an old friend in an attic box in the UK. This book has since been modified and republished under the title “Politically Incorrect” which recently won a coveted “Best Thriller” award in 2013. You can find more information about this together with Mr Chattey’s other thriller books and his autobiography which are available in paperback and eBook. Thank you. >
