Publisher's Summary

Nicky Marlow needs a job. He’s engaged to be married and the employment market in Britain in 1937 is pretty slim. So when his fiancée points out the position with an English armaments manufacturer in Italy, he jumps at the chance.
Soon after he arrives, however, he learns the sinister truth about his predecessor’s departure and finds himself courted by two agents with dangerously different agendas. In the process, Marlow realizes that it’s not so simple just to do the job he’s paid for – not in fascist Italy, on the eve of a world war.

A dated thriller

Enjoyable romp through Fascist Italy with a American who might well be a Russian agent and our hero, a slightly dim Arthur Dent like character. The plot does stretch the imagination but the action is fast and furious.
The narration was a joy and for that reason I have upgraded the rating to four stars whilst the story only merited three.
