Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Returning to his hotel room after a latenight flirtation with a cabaret dancer at an Istanbul boite, Graham is surprised by an intruder with a gun. What follows is a nightmare of intrigue for the English armaments engineer as he makes his way home aboard an Italian freighter. Among the passengers are a couple of Nazi assassins intent on preventing his returning to England with plans for a Turkish defense system, the seductive cabaret dancer and her manager husband, and some surprising allies. Thrilling, intense, and masterfully plotted, Journey Into Fear is a classic suspense tale from one of the founders of the genre.

"The greatest spy novelist of all time." San Francisco Chronicle

Review:

"One of the best stories of international intrigue you'll ever find." The New Yorker

Review:

"Confirms Ambler's reputation as the foremost thriller writer of our time." Time

About the Author

Eric Ambler is often said to have invented the modern suspense novel. Beginning in 1936, he wrote a series of novels that were touted for their realism, in which he introduced ordinary protagonists who are thrust into political intrigue they are ill prepared to deal with. In the process he paved the way for such writers as John Le Carre, Len Deighton, and Robert Ludlum.
