Eric Ambler is often said to have invented the modern suspense novel. Beginning in 1937, he wrote a series of novels that introduced ordinary protagonists thrust into political intrigue they were ill-prepared to deal with. These novels were touted for their realism, and Ambler established himself as a thriller writer of depth and originality. In the process he paved the way for such writers as John Le Carre, Len Deighton, and Robert Ludlum.

Mr. Ambler has fashioned an excellent novel of suspense that is intelligently crafted." --Saturday Review "Our greatest thriller writer."--Graham Greene
