i have amassed the entire collection or preston/child books, including their very first one "superstition"  unfortunately, it is in french and cost me a lot of money.  i got a "d" in french in college, and just can't read it.  any takers?  it is extremely rare, and i ordered it in english--oh, well.  any takers?  pm me, and we can work out a deal.  i am willing to LOAN the other books if you want, but they are my keepers.  i did find this book on barnes and noble in english, used, for $75.00.  didn't want it that much.  the others are pretty much treasures, and on my keeper's list.  just pm me if you want superstition.  linda

This book is just the French version of Relic. Nothing more, nothing less.

really??  if i could read french, i would have known it.  thanks.  i am now very glad i didn't buy that $95.00 used paperback, which i almost did.  i guess i will just throw it away, unless anyone wants it.  oh, well, the sun is shining and the birds are singing.

you could always post it into the system instead of throwing it away. A while ago there were quite a few people with it on thier wishlist.

there are 40 wishers- i just went and looked.

You know I wouldn't be surprized if most of the 40 people also think it is a Preston/Childs book that is just rare, but in english.  There is no book description and if some of those people are like me, if I like an author I will try to pick up anything they've written.  As a matter of fact, I love their books and if I happened to have come across that title here, I might have added it to my wish list.  

It might be a good idea to edit in the book description & state that it is in French.  I would do it myself but it is better if you have the actual book in front of you.
