I notice the new price is £144.73 !!. Presumably a missprint, though I notice that Amazon are only offering trade in of £1.15.
They may correct this before you see it so:

I read it years ago, it was only a small paperback but maybe the amazon version is bound in gold flake :-)

That's no mistake.
Amazon aren't selling it because it is out of print.
The third party sellers are chancing their arm on getting silly money because it might be getting rare.
I have found a lot of cheap books on Amazon being offered at ridiculous prices by thirds parties, some even while Amazon have it for sale at less than the cover price.

Thanks for the picture of the Amazon page Mike. I just spent an unhappy minute clicking on the "Used" link.

Hi everyone, I'm a student at the University of Birmingham doing a freelance project on The Double Zero Club with Flatpack Projects (Digbeth). I have just read Rev. David Collyer's book and it is a fascinating read! I'm interested to hear from anyone who was a member at the time and if anyone has any archive footage/photographs/newspaper-cuttings of the events that went on, as I hear it was pretty well documented in the local press. Thanks!! :)

Hello Matt,

You could try contacting The Mitz using private messages but as we haven't heard from him in a while you may not be successful.

A good source of newspaper material is at.... https://www.britishnewspaperarchive.co.uk
I just searched "double zero club" in advanced search and came up with over 300 references in the 60s.
