Publisher's Summary

Rogue Male is one of the classic thrillers of the 20th century. It's a gripping adventure on the themes of liberty, tyranny, and the ethics of political violence.
An Englishman plans to assassinate the dictator of a European country. But he is foiled at the last moment and falls into the hands of ruthless and inventive torturers. They devise for him an ingenious and diplomatic death but, for once, they bungle the job and he escapes. But England provides no safety from his pursuers - and the Rogue Male must strip away all the trappings of status and civilization as the hunter becomes a hunted animal.

A Classic that never gets old

The release of this book in audio is long overdue. Its clear to see the influence on modern thrillers as the action and themes are as relevant today as on first publication. The suspense and tension flow and grow to a crescendo and Robin Browne's excellent narration bring the very human feelings of the hero to life. Adventure thrillers don't come much better than this!

Late Thirties Gold

This was a good listen, well narrated story of an thirties gent whose attempted assassination of a European leader is thwarted, and his escape from capture and flight are told from his diaries.

Very much a novel of it?s time, it is like the Thirty Nine Steps or Riddle of the Sands. It is a thoughtful story that kept my attention. There is action but much of the story is the main character alone with his thoughts as he goes to ground to escape his enemies.

Very enjoyable, looking forward to getting another of his books!
