In the early stages of the Second World War, a British engineer and arms expert holds secret talks with the Turkish government. Shaken by an attempt on his life, he departs for home on an Italian freighter, with the knowledge that Nazi assassins aim to prevent his return. Friend and foe become quickly indistinguishable as he grapples to trust those around him - should he suspect the cabaret dancer? The German doctor? The unkempt trader? Suspenseful, masterful and intelligent, Ambler will propel you into a journey of fear.

About Eric Ambler

Eric Ambler (1909-98) was one of the most fascinating British writers of the late 1930s. His novels retain a remarkable sense of the dread and terror that filled Europe as world war broke out. Some were made into films (not least Orson Welles' superb version of Journey into Fear), all were bestsellers, inventing a new, more realistic form of spy novel, where the main protagonist is not so much a hero as a victim, pursued by malevolent Fascist forces of overwhelming power.
