Of the 5 hardcover books I purchased in December 2013 as Christmas gifts for my husband, 4 of which were received prior to Christmas 2013, all 4 were hardcovers, brand new, in other words `perfect`. The fifth hardcover book, Clear and Present Danger was ONLY received today, January 8, 2014,about one hour ago, in terrible condition; its supposed to be new but it is not new, the hardcover is damaged in the corners, part of the paper cover has yellowed, water marks dried up, also, when the book is closed you can see dried up water marks across the top and bottom of the book, it is definitely not new. I NEVER WANT TO RECEIVE ANOTHER HARDCOVER BOOK FROM FAST MEDIA IN RICHMOND, TEXAS, EVER AGAIN.
Also, I paid $41.74 for this so-called new `Clear and Present Danger` yet, inside the paper cover it says $ 29.95 Canadian funds - why am I paying $ 41.74?
I do not want this book. Please respond.
