Overview

A Dandy in Aspic by Derek Marlowe

Alexander Eberlin is a small, faceless civil servant working for the Government at the height of the Cold War. As he nears middle age, he allows himself one luxury - to dress like a Dandy. His superiors send him on a mission to hunt down and destroy a cold-blooded and vicious Russian assassin named Krasnevin, who is responsible for a number of British agents' deaths. But Eberlin has a secret - he is Krasnevin. This is the story of what happens when Eberlin is sent to destroy himself.
Now back in print fifty years after it was written, The Times says A Dandy in Aspic is 'A well groomed anecdote to today's fast-paced thrillers with gym-buffed heroes. Eberlin is the real deal.'
