When his camera is swapped with one whose film contains sensitive photos of secret naval installations in Toulon, Vadassy comes under suspicion of being a Gestapo agent. At the beginning of the Second World War, British engineer Howard Graham has been involved in high-level talks with the Turkish government regarding arms manufacturing, an alliance which displeases German spies.
After surviving an assassination attempt in his hotel room in Istanbul, Graham changes his route home to England and boards a passenger steamer across the Mediterranean to Genoa. However, although Graham initially believes he is safe, it quickly transpires that the other passengers on board are not all as they seem.
Neither Vadassy or Graham are professional spies and nor do they readily embrace their new positions as amateur sleuths. Filed under Books. Like Like. Like Liked by 1 person. Glad to see that you enjoyed these novels by Ambler — they sound excellent. Hi there!
Thank you for some awsome tips! Well, there are now 14 in all, the first is called The Night Soldier and this has become the generic title of the whole series. If starting from the beginning is not your bag, then I would strongly recommend these three — The World at Night, which is set in Paris and is similar territory to the film The Last Metro though they are not remotely related , Kingdom of Shadows which is set in Paris in , but covers other places including Vienna.
The last one in this recommendation is The Polish Spy. However, I am loth to pick these out, since I have been a committed reader since the very first one. They are clever, ambitious, frightening and compulsive. Let me know what you think. I forgot to mention that some characters appear in more than one book. Jean Casson makes his first reluctant entry into the world of espionage in The World at Night, and his adventures continue in Red Gold. There are other examples. I just finished Journey Into Fear. I recd word today that I have an Amazon gift card due to the settlement of a class action lawsuit over the pricing of books.
Think I will use it on some more Eric Ambler! You are commenting using your WordPress. You are commenting using your Google account.
