We have here a variation on the cover of The Van Rijn Method, with a slightly different image of van Rijn. SSL is PLC 2987165 II. PLC could mean Public Limited Company but here means Polesotechnic League Company, I think. The three people on the sinking skycruiser (see previous post) are Wace, van Rijn and Lady Sandra Tamarin from Hermes, Falkayn's home planet. The plot thickens, somewhat.
These are details soon forgotten after reading a novel but my present purpose is to note as many interesting and interconnected details as possible while simultaneously reading the second Modesty Blaise novel. See here.
