Published by Futura Publications in 1976, this was the second New Avengers
paperback. It was published in the USA by our good friends at Berkeley
Medallion in November, 1978. The story is based on the screenplay for the
TV episode, The Eagle's Nest, which was written by Brian Clemens (who gets no
credit anywhere in the book). There was also a hardcover edition of this
published in the UK.
