Riassunto: A thriller by the author of "The Mask of Dimitrios", "The Levanter" and "Send no more Roses".
L'autore: Eric Clifford Ambler was born in London. Aged fifteen, he won an engineering scholarship to a college associated with London University, but left without taking a degree to work as a technical trainee. Progression to the publicity department led to a position in advertising, where he did well and became a director age twenty-six. He also took to writing; plays initially, but these failed to find an appreciative audience so he turned his talents to novels. During the war he transferred to the army film unit where he made over ninety films, including The Way Ahead with David Niven and Peter Ustinov. Afterward, he worked mostly in America as a successful screenwriter, winning an Academy Award for his work on The Cruel Sea in 1953. Ambler?s central characters are believable because they are not necessarily well connected, or found to be harboring aspirations to become members of the establishment. Rather, they are well-meaning amateur underdogs who somehow overcome sometimes extreme adversity to win.
