Publisher's Summary

It is 1940, and Mr Graham, a quietly-spoken engineer and arms expert, has just finished high-level talks with the Turkish government. And now somebody wants him dead.
The previous night, three shots were fired at him as he stepped into his hotel room, so, terrified, he escapes in secret on a passenger steamer from Istanbul. As he journeys home - alongside, among others, an entrancing French dancer, an unkempt trader, a mysterious German doctor, and a small, brutal man in a crumpled suit - he enters a nightmarish world where friend and foe are indistinguishable. Graham can try to run, but he may not be able to hide for much longer....

An engaging thriller

Eric Ambler is a name I know but haven't read. Authors go in and out of fashion and I reckon he's due for a. revival to judge from this well-crafted thriller, that reminds me of Graham Greene, but without all the religious agonizing.
This recording has an interesting and informative introduction that puts the author in context and gives the listener a bit of biograpahical background.
It's a pacy thriller with plenty of twists and turns as the lead character, Graham, an armaments engineer gets embroiled in Second World War political intrigues when on a visit to Turkey. The narrator is excellent and does some impressive switches among accents and languages.
A most enjoyable romp with humorous touches.

Set In 1940, Sounds Of That Time.

I start by saying that I had to read this book, for a class.

The book is set in 1940. Graham is a quietly-spoken engineer & arms expert.

After high-level talks with the Turkish government, he was due to go home, but his life was threatened.

Graham escapes in secret, on a passenger steamer from Istanbul. This leaves him more, not less, vulnerable.
