It's true that Eric Ambler provided a model for Graham Greene, John Le Carre and other first-class literary novelists. Greene called him "our greatest thriller writer." But in my opinion this book is not his best, despite its reputation for being so. His most perfect novel may Background to Danger, more satisfying for characters that you can care about and scenes of true danger and escape.

The reviews are correct. Le Carre, Deighton, and Furst have all followed after a master. If you enjoy intrigue, mystery, and suspense over an action thriller, then Ambler should be on your list.
