The second published novel by the celebrated author of ON THE BEACH is very, very British. The conventional thriller could have been filmed by a young Hitchcock. Driving home one evening, a veteran of the Great War picks up a hitchhiker whom he recognizes as a fellow flying ace. He shelters the basically good chap, who admits to spying for the Soviets. How to reform the bloke, protect him from authorities, and foil the Russians? Stephen Thorne has just the right sound for this tale. He transports us to the age of biplanes, "playing the game," and Etonian rules of decency. Y.R. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 01]
